    Is it a standard exhaust with the heat exchanger fitted for the heater or a modified exhaust. Get some new pipes.

    i think something is misunderstood, from my fault of explanation, forgive me. i researched icing and thats not what i mean by cold engine. i guess i still dont have the terminology down, ahah. If a comfortable temperature out, even in the morning, or hell, even in the afternoon, she'll have trouble turning straight on, for the first time of the day. i know its an oxygene problem because of the following: unscrew electric choke, open it up from being fully closed. tighten bolts, engine turns over fine. after short amounts of driving, will stall out once hot, and idle. if i get the engine to idle, ill go to the back, and manually close the choke with my finger, idles perfect.

    So called J pipes, in that case seal the fan housing outlets, literally a Coke can (other brands of soft drinks in recyclable aluminium cans are available) secured with a worm drive (AKA Jubilee) clamp will suffice, whether you cut it down and use just the base or the full body, is upto you!

    Then you MUST seal the openings in the rear engine tinware, recycled air from below the engine is a disaster BUT doing this in the short term can exacerbate carb icing which I think is what you have or some other form of fuel starvation but that poor boxer motor in the picture you posted has been subjected to some appalling bastardisation and so in the metal in front of me I would probably say cross my palms with your credit card and let’s start again or not at all, it depends on how desperate the mechanic you approach is.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Well a couple things you'll be happy with! With that picture being old, it doesnt show what i have done. Ive replaced the rubber seal around the tinning, as well as sealed the openings in the tinning and rear engine with aluminum tape. I plan on either getting new tinning or straightening and editing what i have (metalworker/blacksmith for 10 years) anyways, so i dont care how it looks. I DO have J-tubes, but there's an oval casing between them and the tinning that im missing. Im sure the state of the engine hasn't fully set in yet, but im willing to give it the time and parts it needs (in increments of what i can afford, lol)
