Re: Engine not starting - checked everything - no more idea

Congratulations on getting it running. There seems to be a lot of failures reported

Re: GAV Adjustment + Choke flood

Have you read the instruction manual? http://www.motormayhem.net/wp-uploads/2009/04/Model-A-Instruction-Manual.pdf


I would open the GAV 1 to 1 1/4 turns open with a cold engine.
