Just wanted to update you on my car, because it's still giving trouble. I had the carb. re-built and the mechanic fixed my cold idle problem by bypassing one of the resistors on the firewall (it wasn't functioning properly) however, the car starts with no problem while cold.

When warm, it turns over, starts and then dies. If I pump the gas, it will rev, but if I keep constant pressure on the gas it dies.

The mechanic got it fixed by adjusting the bi-metal coil in the choke housing to the rich position and the problem went away, the car ran great, but when I turned off the car and re-started it after 30 seconds, same result. Cough, sputter die.

The only thing I think that is left to check is the little spring under the choke piston that gives the piston resistance. Other than that, I don't know what else to check. The needle ? We checked the fuel pump and it's not leaking.

If you can help, please !
