[DML] Re: Cold Start System

The cold start valve gets power from a terminal on the starter
solenoid during cranking. It is possible there is a bad connection
inside the solenoid for that terminal. The starter would still run
fine but you won't get full voltage to the cold start valve. Put the
meter on the terminal for the cold start valve on the starter solenoid
and crank the motor. If you do not get full voltage (as compared to
the terminal going to the starter motor from the solenoid) you need to
replace the solenoid. You also need to check the gound connection for
the cold start valve. It is possible that is not connected/dirty and
with full voltage the valve still can't work. You have to check BOTH
sides of a circuit.

my problem has been lying in the fact that my cold start valve never
actually fires.  I have verified that the valve itself is operational
by replacing it's power source with that of the CPR, and gas squirts
just fine.  So you are probably thinking that my thermal time switch
is bad, I ruled that out by verifying that there is continuity between
