    hitachi carb fuel flow on / off valve ?

    Yes, the valve is called the needle and seat, and the float shuts off the fuel when the level is correct. Also, there is a screen around the inlet. If you need to replace it, remove the rubber fuel hose, then while holding the base, take off the small cap to remove the inlet pipe. Then you can unscrew the needle and seat from carb top.

    Gauges increase rapidly when lights on (72 510)

    Sounds like the dash lights are seeking ground thru your gauges. Look for corrosion on circuit board and/or round connector.

    81 210 blower fan fuse?

    Check fuses with a test light, not visually If it blows on high speed only, you need to repair or replace fan speed resistor.

    Rockers must be installed to allow compression test.
  10. Possible pickup coil. When it fails to start, dump cold water on distributor with cap off. Or, you could swap distributor with known good unit
  11. Confirmed no spark when it does not start?

    I dont feel the egr is the problem. Egr stuck open, engine won't idle. Egr stuck shut, engine runs normally but with high NOx . Carb is leaking fuel into venturi when throttle is open or choke is not fully open
