  1. Back in the day (when I was young), I’d often start a stubborn car engine by pouring a trickle of gasoline straight into the carburetor. Getting more air into it was then supplied by sticking my comb into the butterfly flap inside the throat of the carburetor while someone else turned the ignition key inside. I’m looking back to the late 50’s here.

    Either that or they’re filling an overheated radiator with water from a creek.

    • I’ve never even heard of a butterfly flap! I think if I saw those two on the side of the road, I’d stop to just supervise. There might be more bottles in the back seat, and we could have some fellowship.
