Hi, I own a Ford Pinto 2.1 with twin Webber 45's, if I run it until it is propery hot in the summer (it is not overheating) and immediately try to start again (even 30mins later) it simply will not start and yesterday I could not even bump start it. My mechanic tells me that this is due to high temperatures evaporating the petrol out of the carbs through the air intakes and that I should try depressing the accelarator 4x before turning the ignition to try an get the petrol in. Do people concur/ are there any other ideas out there? He did mention that some people have put a baffle between the engine and the carbs to reduce carb temps, but it doesn't sound very convincing to me. I suppose I could upgrade the fan to reduce temps to a consistent 80deg? Trevor
