Volvo Coupes/Sedans/Wagons1970-1989 Repair Guide
Carbureted engines have incorporated many pollutant control devices, such asa temperature-regulated fuel jet, an air/fuel mixture preheating chamber, anda throttle bypass or over-rev valve. Measures have also been taken to improvethe operation and driveability of emission controlled engines such as a cold start device, a constantintake air temperature device and a hot start valve. The temperature-regulated fuel mixture isaccomplished differently on the Zenith-Stromberg carburetor than on the SU carburetor.On the Zenith-Stromberg carburetor, a temperature sensitive bimetal spring (in the temperaturecompensator) actuates an air valve that varies the air supplied the venturi area, maintaining aconstant air/fuel ratio. This ratio is maintained despite changing fuel temperature.Within the SU carburetor, a temperature sensitive bimetal spring raises or lowers an adjustable jetto maintain the proper air/fuel ratio at changing fuel temperatures.The air/fuel mixture preheating chamber used on pre-1972 models is located between the primarythrottles in the carburetors and the secondary throttles in the intake manifold.

See Figures 1 and 2
Please refer to the component legend (following) for the Zenith-Stromberg carburetor. This procedure refers to components by number which makes the legend to which they are keyed necessary.
If the idle speed drops off sharply during extended periods of idling, especially during warm weather,the temperature compensator may be in need of adjustment or replacement. Use the accompanyingdiagram to help you.

Remove the screws (7) holding the plastic cover (5) to the compensator and remove the cover.1.With the ambient temperature at or above 85°F (29°C), the valve (3) should be able to bepressed inward with light finger pressure and then return to its position without jamming. If thevalve jams and/or is stiff in operation, the temperature compensator should be replaced as aunit. See Temperature Compensator Replacement.2.
