/ Vespa not starting - snow in air intake. Advice please?
get a tin of quick start, then spray into the carb.
Will get it going which should then let it burn out any moisture. i'd also spray some wd or other crap like that around the spark plug can which may have ingressed some moisture.
There is a chance the reed valve is frozen shut.
its possible the fuel pump has frozen as it has a diagpram in it., as for bumping it, thats a no go as its an auto, if its like a traditional type vespa the air intake is under the seat so should be clear.
