Re: Possible carb issue? Help or advice please

The bloody thing g getting on my nerves. Set up carb again and seemed OK. Only done by ear so not perfect along with replacing fuel filter, fuel pipe return hose, vac hose with diy restricter in it.

Re: My Volvo 340.

A bit of an update. Bought a new centre pipe as the economical repair didn't work. Ended up sleeving the front pipe to make it all work.
