Stalling after startup

Rate this Entry
My '81 Zagato recently went through a complete paint job including removal of all rear lighting and trunk interior carpeting. After re-assembly it started but failed to continue running after 20 seconds or so. There is spark and all appears to be okay but yet the stalling persists. Is this a ground problem or have I wired something incorrectly? I know it's difficult to diagnose through this post but I would appreciate anybody's experiences with fuel management.
Thanks in advance to everyone.

    I'm assuming your car has a carb in which case your symptoms sound like it could be dirt clogging up the idle jet on the carb. If you have a manual choke, can you get the car to run by keeping the choke on?

    If you do have a carb, you just need to remove the idle jets and blow them through.
