Soon bought a 39 Dodge Business Coupe with flathead engine.
Everything is fine just one issue keep bothering me:
The car always very hard to start, just cranking, no fire. But if I put some petrol or start-up spray, then immediately fire up until you turn it off.
Even the engine is warm, I must repeat the same process to restart it. With mechanics checked everything include good compression, still no idea what's going wrong.....
NEW spark plugs, New carburetor Stromburg BXV-3 (checked, originally equipped with that ), New battery, New fuel pump.
Just curious where is the problem, guys please advice. Thank you !
