    Default Mondial cold start

    Hi all,

    I have a 1986 3.2 Mondial and hear that some of you disconnect the cold start fuel injector in warm weather as it is not needed. I have tried this tonight and it does seem a lot better from cold and runs fine. In the back of my mind I seem to think that this also supplies extra fuel at wide open throttle. Does anyone know if I am dreaming and are there any other ill effects that I should know of?

    Trevor.

    Interesting. I have removed mine on occasions when I think it has been flooded. I had not realised what this was until SteveW pointed it out.

    As for the extra fuel at open throttle, I too would like to know if there is anything in this?

    the cold start injector will only supply extra fuel from cold,it does not supply extra fuel at full throttle.

    Dale,

    My Mondial misfires something chronic from cold. Could someone show me where to disconnect, to see if things improve.
