    fuel enrichment valve

    Hi
    Staggers

    Still trying to get to the bottom of my lumpy starting,does anyone know if on the Stroms ,the fuel enrichment valve is fitted to both sides? and has anyone tackled removal of this valve without removing the carbs?

    TIA

    If you mean the choke module, yes there is one on each carb on the stag v8. normally it is just a case of making sure that when you pull on the choke both start to move at the same time, tinsy bit of cable adjustment and they should be ok

      I'm pretty sure that they are just held on by 2 screws, no gasket. you can get the left one off for certain, right probably needs the air filter removed, and I think its the same.

      You should check that the very small holes in the rotating plate are not clogged up and the pressure is maintained by the spring, i.e its not siezed up.

      TBH its not much more work to remove the carb pair if you find you need to, may be easier in the end..

      check out pics of carbs.. e.g. https://www.socforum.com/forum/forum...rts#post805355
      on the second pic the 2 screws are easily spotted. rhs the #10 line runs through one of them.

        Hi Richard,
        Yes Im aware of the choke mechanism,but at the cable fit side,there is a little plate with holes in it to enrich mixture on starting

          Thanks Terry,I know that sometimes the valve can be reinstalled 180 degree out,and I want to check that

          Cheers Mate

              we are talking about the same think then

              two screws to each on as has been said already. undo the nut securing the outside lever to the choke cables and you should be able to push the disc with the little holes through the body.

                Hi Suj,
                Do you mean a gasket around the plate with holes ,the enrichment valve?

                  Yes sorry Richard ,not heard the valve ,called choke module before ,so yes the same item.
                  Have you managed to push the disc out whilst in situ on the carb,with carbs still fitted? I know the airbox would need to be removed

                  Cheers

                    I see no reason why the carbs need to be removed

                    But the module needs to come off the carb first, 2 screws and the cable of course.

                    The disc pushes through on the inside of the module housing, dead easy to see when you look at it on the bench

                        The disc can be reassembled incorrectly. Don’t have a record of the correct orientation sorry.
                        There are 2 secrets to staying on top :- 1. Don't give everything away.

                            And there are gaskets available for them from Burlen. Mine started to leak until I fitted gaskets - there were none to begin with. Pic sh IMG_4416r.jpg ows the correct orientation of the drilled disc.

                              Just for clarity are you saying that the four holes sit at the the bottom of the carb ,ie pointing south or to the floor?

                              Many thanks Wilf,
                              this is a useful reference to me and others cheers
