Re: [T3] Stalling issues

<x-flowed>The mechanic replaced the "fuel cut off solenoid" on my carbureted 67 Eggcrate. It made all the difference with the stalling,loping etc! Mike Fisher Harrisburg, OR PS When mine won't start I have to hold the throttle to the floor to get it to start.

Subject: [T3] Stalling issues

Hi all,
I have a bit of an update about my car, and a question....
I just had the head replaced and a new clutch put in. It seems like I have a bit more power and will hopefully
get me better than the 10mgs I was getting before- but have been having a big issue with the car stalling
(at very very inopportune times like on the freeway). Seems to happen soon after starting the car- either in
the am or on my way home from work- always when I'm at a stop. Doesn't happen every time I drive the
car. Have to leave it resting for about 1/2 hr. and then can usually start it, or if it happens while driving I can
do a modified push start while still moving. If I rev the engine it seems to keep it from happening. Drive fine
again once I get it started again. Have taken it back to the mechanic but he's stumped and says it needs to
do it for him to try and figure it out. Any clues?
