Re: Serpentine System for Flatheads

Re: Hard to start when hot

Cold start with a good volt meter you can learn a lot. Run it hot and test with a volt meter. But you have a electronic ignition. Not great advice. Shouldn't have a ballest between the perm and the...

Re: Hard to start when hot

If the bowls are full. It's getting gas supply i'd suspect. PV are designed to open under lower vacuum. It's not vapor lock I'd guess or never experienced.

Re: fuel pump removal?

I was also talking hot idle. Should have said idle, not underload. I agree 80 is high. To me even on a 8ba if you have oil pressure. your good to go.

Re: fuel pump removal?

I used to only use straight 30 diesel in florida. Mn I use 10-40. When it's hot you see a bit of drop. But nothing like going from 80 to 20. Or an increase really that drastic either. Maybe with the...

Re: Hard to start when hot

It's hard to check ignition under idle. Try a condenser. I've had decent luck with ih200 from napa, buy a few. Not every is good out the box. There are other options also. Then maybe get a skip coil....
