The choke does close up as per normal but I have to keep the throttle held open to get extra air to burn the excess fuel and when the choke is finally open keep the throttle open to maintain the revs.

Hmm I'm not sure but it wouldn't idle very well, I'm not very good with carbs and carbs from this era often have extra sophistications for emission control. Have you checked of the auto choke is switching off correctly?

All the mechanics are as per the carb car. Am I correct in thinking that with the idle mixture screw fully home the car shouldn' idle.

Is it using the mechanical fuel pump or the electric one of the VX?

Neil, After starting I have to hold the throttle open to maintain revs otherwise it just dies, there is a strong petrol smell from the exhaust and the plugs soot up very quickly.
Alan, my mistake , the car is actually an '83 Volumex shell into which the previous owner had fitted the 2000 carb. engine.
I have a spare carb. which I have also overhauled and will try on tomorrow. One curiosity I noticed is a difference in the shape of the idle mixture control jets. One is tapered and the other has a step in the taper. I assume they are interchangeable between both carbs as doing so doesn't make any difference to the running.

Just curious, was this car originally an i.e. as an 85 with carb is a bit of an oddity?

What are the symptoms of over fuelling that you are seeing? Normally, after long lay ups, these carburettors under fuel due to blockages.

Hi Peter, I'm testing without the air filter fitted, I've disconnected the fuel return at the carb. and let it run into a container and there's no change, and I've fitted a new float needle valve assy although that may not be seating properly. Is there any visible sign when looking into the carb that it is flooding?

Hi David

Problem with carb flooding due to faulty valve or blocked return pipe to tank, air filter clogged/damp?

Just first thoughts!
