Re: [DML] Fuel plunger sticking

Sounds like you need to investigate your CPR but the plunger should 
indeed move freely at all times and although cleaning may help, I have 
come across plungers that were just simply too tight in the hole for the 
throttle to respond properly. You can't just replace the plunger because 
they are precision ground and matched to the head they're in
