Greg-thanks for your input. I remember replacing the needle and seat which was in the rebuild kit. For example on the Austin Healey, using SUs, the needle is nylon or delran on a bakealite body and fits into a brass seat. They work fine unless the float gets hung up on its spindle.  The float setting is 7/16" across the flat to regulate this flow.  What do you think I need to do on the Strombergs to set the float to shut off the needle and seat properly? The car will just not run and it chokes up and stalls out so I can't just wait for the needle to seat while driving. Do you think the timing belt or piston rings are not  issues in this case? Hank
