Re: Fuel cutoff valve?
The only issue with early Q-Jets is the plugs in the two wells areas leak. Extended sitting periods allow the fuel to leak out of the bowl and into the intake manifold. When you allow it to sit for that long time, when you come back to start it, does it require a long cranking time before it fires? If so, that's because the well plugs leak. On the early models, pre 75, the leaking well plugs is almost 100%.
