d510addict Posted February 11, 2011 Report Share Posted February 11, 2011 I have a L16 in my 521 and the guy I bought it from put a 2 barrel holly carb on it. Problem is there is no place on the carb for a choke. So as you might think it doesn't like to start when its cold, and it ends up flooding even when I don' pump the pedal for some extra gas before I crank it over. Another interesting thing about it is that there was a newer style 1974 plus distributor on it which was really difficult to find condenser/cap/rotor for so I swapped out that for an older distributor and Its pretty much impossible to start when it is cold (had to tow start it last time). So basically I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what I could do to prevent it from flooding so easily and where I might get parts for the older distrib. and or a link to a match box dizzy conversion. Opinions would be much appreciated. Thank you ~Derick Quote Link to comment
