[DML] Re: Fuel plunger sticking

It is posssible that the plunger is sticking. If you are real careful
you can take the mixture unit apart and wash the plunger with a soft
cloth and acetone. There could be other things that can also cause
similar problems. Make sure the air sensor is centered and DOES NOT
TOUCH THE SIDES OF THE VENTURI. The rest position can also be
adjusted. If the plunger is damaged, depending on where and how bad,
it might be possible to polish out a scratch. This kind of stuff is
best left to someone with some experience but if it is already damaged
then you can't do much worse to it! Again, make sure the frequency
valve is buzzing. A dead Lambda would cause these symptoms. A bad CPR
can also look like this so recheck the vacuum lines to it.
