not running right
« on: April 15, 2019, 04:09:40 pm »
only me with more useless drivel about the wreck i own,

ok, Ian did a great job sorting clutch out, i now see how straightforward that process was. Iv taken him up on his advice about what to buy to sort it, and on dealing with the carb issues it has / had, and deleted the choke assembly

carb is a 274 (not a 289 as i was advised)

starts up well after a few pokes of the tickler

tick over adjusted to tick over

2 mins ticking over it cuts out

press tickler again, starts up and does exactly above

iv screwed in the air screw, does the same, iv screwed out the air screw, does the same.

iv managed to ride bike 10foot with throttle needing to be full open, and then it cuts out.

follow the same routine and starts etc etc etc
iv lifted the float, but it just overflows immediately

all suggestions welcome please

Thanks Ian.
At elevensies request I have removed the many replies. :-X
I really hope it ends happily for him, and he leaves yours as a jolly C rider  :)
