Would you be so kind to help me with a starting problem that I have from cold. I have a 1974 Chevrolet Camaro with a 350 ci and automatic. The problem I am having is that when the car is left standing for a month or so with out starting it is very hard to start. If I pour gas directly into the carburetor it will start straight away, but then die when the fuel has been used. Up I can then crank it up and it will start much easier after the fuel is poured straight in the carburetor.
The carb is a four barrel Holly 600cfm 1850. The fuel pump has been changed and is a new one. When I try to start it, the motor will keep cranking, but not fire. After a while it will kind of fire, then die. Pouring the gas in circumvents this starting problem. When it has started and is running, the starting is not a problem. Even when it is left for a at least a week it will crank and start.
This is my first time in writing to you and was recommended by a friend who does use your expertise.
