It was overfilled with oil because I drained more than 5 liters from it. Now the engine does not smoke much but I think I have problem with carburetor adjustment.
The problem is that now it is very hard to start the engine when it is cold
When I open chock plate it starts much easier. I think the mixture is very rich as it has very strong gasoline smell. is this connected with idle mixture somehow?
Thanks a lot.

Hello again,
I find out what the problem was. The fast idle screw was on the first step on the cam, not on the second one as recommended. I corrected this and now the engine starts fine. I wonder how the fast idle screw could go there by itself
I don't see any way how to keep it in the right position
Thanks again
Ivo
PS here are some pics of my monte and my trabant

I see that parking must not be an issue for you. The Trabant fits nicely on the hood of the Monte, doesn't it? Ha, Ha

It's good to see other cars like mine, especially the world over. I own two '78s, and an '80 in that body style generation--however none of mine currently run... .


In a while, Chet.

P.S. Is that a bra hanging from the right rear tire?????

There should be a spring that the screw goes thru to keep pressure in the screw to keep it from backing out.
