  1. I've covered the fuel lines with Aluminum foil in order to avoid vapour lock. But still the problem of starting the engine exists.
  2. I replaced my radiator two years ago. Water pump too seems to be working fine [AsI open the radiator cap when the engine is running (when warming up), I can see the coolant flowing (thermo valve not installed)]. I suspect there is a overheating issue. So what can be the culprit for overheating if the radiator and water pump are ok?
  3. Thank you both. I shall check the components......
  4. Fuel pump replaced. Still I the problem remains.
  5. My Maruti 800, Carb 1996, engine overhauled two years back. I can start the engine in the morning and in a traffic when the engine is hot. But it is very difficult to start the engine after 10-15 minutes after few miles run. But if I let the engine cool for 1 hours I can start the engine What can be the possible reasons?
  6. I called the local Maruti agent twice and they gave me two answers. One guy said 0.15mm and other said 0.40mm. Thanks to this forum, at least, now I know the dwell angle should be 63 degrees.
  7. I did not receive any owners manual when I bought the car. So I downloaded a owners manual which is meant for EFI Maruti 800 and not very useful. Unfortunately I can't find any information related to 1996 model.
  8. Thanks for the reply. It is not mentioned in the owners manual. Unfortunately I do not have access to a workshop manual.
  9. I own maruti 800 carb (1996) Recently I replaced CB points My technician needs to set the dwell angle 63 degrees but a dwell meter not available. Could someone tell me the correct gap for CB point
