EAll was ok a few weeks ago but now I have trouble starting the Austin Big Seven. It turns but does not catch except when I pour in a bit of petrol in the carb. Lasts only a few seconds. I replaced the petrol pump and also replaced new gaskets on the carb but no luck. Should I check if petrol filter is blocked on the line close to the carb ? All hoses are tight. Any trouble shooting tips please e-mail me at the above address. morris in Montreal canada
