Yes, I am going to rewire the cold start valve back to the original after I get it to run and idle.

Yes, I know, I have a LOT of work to due to bring this baby back to road worthy life.
FYI: this is my second Fiat Spider. I has a 1973 model, 30 years ago. It ran like a Bat-Outa-H*ll. I loved that car. And now I have high hopes for my new 1980 fuelly.
