Twins / air/choke worth fitting on concentric carbs?
« on: 12 July, 2017, 18:16:03 »
I am having trouble starting an A65 Spitfire fitted with new concentric carbs. My local garage can start it no trouble and it runs very well when started, but I struggle to fire it up. It does not have choke slides fitted and I wonder if anyone has experience of starting with choke slides in place. Does it cold start much easier with chokes on? I had no trouble starting my A10 without a choke fitted.
 It could be age catching up with me or I haven't mastered the technique yet. To me, the kickstart has a completely different feel to the A10 with a lot more travel. Maybe I need a box to stand on!
Any thoughts or tips much appreciated.
