Cold/warm air selector

Post by mnde » Wed Dec 21, 2005 4:38 pm

I'm assuming that in this box, similar to the GSA, is a plastic flap on a spring which allows hot air from the manifold, delivered by a tube, to heat the engine/carb from cold, and a bimetallic strip which, once a certain temperature is reached, moves the flap so that it cuts off the hot air supply and opens the cool air supply. Am I right?
