On a unrelated matter, what is this WAX Valve I read about......
Is it associated with the automatic choke on our 1800's.....??? Just curious......
Does it expands or contracts according to temp of engine and adjusts the startup RPM's ??
I am correct here ?
YES. it IS the coolant temperature controlled Fast Idle... NO CHOKE..
it does have a few issues over time.. not real common. YET.
it can stick... maybe in cold mode or hot mode...
moisture oxidizes its body and then sticks.
mine stuck about 4 years ago... in fast idle mode... a little cleaning and done.
Good digging Sir...
