Quote from: Schmitti on August 10, 2018, 04:55 AMIn Europe, the proportion of methanol in gasoline is a major problem in all classic cars . What works with metal parts in the gasoline system just like that is a huge problem with the old rubber pipes and especially with the aluminum parts of a carburettor . We also have only little help here. We change from gasoline with ROZ 91 (10% alcohol) to more expensive gasoline with ROZ 95 (5% alcohol) or even higher quality grades. But it does not help really well, because the only chance is to consume a lot of driving / gasoline. Standing vehicles also mean longer service life and thus exposure times of the gasoline / alcohol. Without a catalyst it helps to use a lead additive from time to time. As a precaution, ALL rubber parts of the fuel lines should still be replaced. After every metal in the pipe, a filter should be used in the vintage cars to stop any flakes that clog the carburetor nozzles. Carburetor & Co can only work properly with ultrasonic cleaning. Great misery.Greetings from GermanyThomas

It may not be there, someone had taken mine out and just put in a piece of fuel line. I did replace the filter, that little filter in the carburetor is worthless!
