Re: sticking high idle cam

Did you disconnect the choke rod at the carb & see if it's adjusted correctly. If the choke with the engine hot drops screw the choke rod down to align with the hole. If that's not it good luck with it. :dontknow:

Re: Corsa idle problem

The first thing I would do is check the accelerator linkage swivel. If it is turned out to far the accelerator rod could hold the carbs from closing. See the image, click on it to enlarge it, it's number 33 near the bottom of the image.

Re: How to remove a 64 vair trunk lock without key ?

So what you're saying is you have a key but the lock does not turn???????????? Did you WD-40 the lock?? Here is a photo of the clip that holds the lock in, just push it up & you can remove the lock, then use a small screwdriver to turn the mechanism & open the lid.

Re: Ill fitting engine fuel line.

The fuel line goes on the outside of the carb.. I assume you ordered line C. from Clark's page 67.

Re: Tuned the carbs

My 64 sat for 22 years, I rebuilt the carbs, cleaned out the gas tank, new points & condenser, new plugs & wires & set the timing & put new oil cooler seals in. It smoked bad at first but I kept running it & the smoke finally went away. It has been my daily driver for 3 years. I might have been luck...
