Yeah, I forget my reasoning for using the XJ-style bypass valve, but it was cheap (if I recall; this was twenty years ago) and easy to integrate.

There is indeed only one in the new kit; you can replace the other with a 1"x3/8"x3/8" nylon spacer (I got a pack of two made by "Hillman" from my Lowes).

Yay!

Glad you figured that out!

One way to isolate heat-related problems is to use a hair-dryer or heat-gun to warm up the suspect component when everything else is cold, and see if the problem is...

I like Wiley's suggestion; those can frequently be heat-related. You might also be over-rich due to fuel-evaporation. Does your bowl-vent solenoid function properly?

The outer flapper is the heat-stove, which is normally open without vacuum; you want that closed by manifold vacuum until the incoming air is above a certain temperature. That's why its vacuum source...

Yeah, I know; but since it was an unanswered question, and the IFSJA forums is usually one of the first places to pop up in a Google search, I figured I'd complete the circle.
