Well - IT RUNS!!! (movie on the SUDAMA website) Yahoo!!! but ... with this project there is always a but. I need your help. I put a set of dual carbs on this engine. I had rebuilt them with the appropriate kits. But ... when the engine is running, the carbs appear to pump lots of gas out the bypass tube that flows from the float chamber to the throat. My original thought was that the float was not shutting off the ball valve or that the valve was not working But, the valves are working - I took the carbs apart and tried to blow air through them while pushing in on the valve. I tried bending the arm to the float so that it would shut the valve off earlier but that appeared not to have an effect. Has anyone else experienced this and gave a solution or explanation? Thanks
Do you have the plastic piece that goes on to the float pivot pin. That is a common ommision. Also, try putting the original needle valves back in. There have been a lot of reports of the ones in the kits not being of good quality.
