Spitfire 1500 carb. problem


Recommended Posts

Apologies in advance for yet another newbie question.

My '78 Spitfire was running rough after starting it yesterday. I would seem that the choke on the front carb had stuck open. Pushing the bottom of the mechanism under the carb upwards clicked it back into place and seemed to cure the problem. However I found that the bottom of the carb is covered in oil, which is probably what caused it to stick in the first place. This oil must be leaking from the dashpot and I was wondering which parts I need to look at or replace to cure it.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
