1958 Citroen 2cv Fourgonnette carb issue?

Recommended Posts


I have a 1958 Citroen 2cv van that had been sitting for a long time but recently resurrected by me. Not running well, I just rebuilt the carb but still have issues.

The main problem is upon acceleration, it bogs down and will only run well when I reopen the choke. Once it is completely warmed up (we're talking 15 minutes of driving) it is somewhat better, but I still have to leave the choke open for it to pull on any load - maintaining speed isn't a problem.

Also, placing my hand over the venturi, doesn't stall it and has little effect on its running. Can find no vacuum leaks around base of carb or the manifold itself. 

The carb is a 28 I believe.

Can you help this novice out? Let me know if more information is needed.

Also, I haven't found any pictures of other 2cvs with the dash layout mine has. I've been told it might be a Belgium made truck but that is not confirmed.

Thank you for your help.
