Re: Huge carb discovery <i think> main venturi seal spacer gap

heck... i just spent the day trying to figure out all the different stop lever/tabs. sure it's in the fsm, but can you really tell whats being pointed at in the pictures. cause i can't. you almost have to bottom out the fast idle screw to even touch anything (let alone get the valve at a 20deg angle...

Re: Huge carb discovery <i think> main venturi seal spacer gap

petros... i'm surprised. it seems you completely glazed over what i was referring to in my post.

the size of it.
it does need to seal against the top of the carb right?
the bigger ones seem to be a better fit. will know better when i put it on and make adjustments in the daylight of course.

Huge carb discovery <i think> main venturi seal spacer gap

so i decided to measure some things. (any excuse to use a micrometer) something about the rubber seal on top of the main venturi didn't feel quite right. not it being there but its thickness. so... from top carb upper mating surface with gasket to the hole above the main venturi just a hair over 6mm...

Re: Carburetor Fuel Mixture Screw?

the plug was removed when i got it, has already been tampered with, and she definitely doesn't idle right, and appears damaged. i'm kind of an exhaust my resources of tangible info before i ask questions because i'm still not certain type. though i appreciate the reiteration because you never know. ...

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

curious where to get the mixture screw as i'm remembering mine has a scored ring a wee bit down from the tip and no one said anything about it when i mentioned it in a previous post. any info on it's function and what would entail damaging it to the point of not functioning correctly will be appreci...

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

well i got her running, and i'm feeling pretty silly right now because it seems i haven't been getting my battery charged enough to be able to crank the engine enough to pull gas through the whole line before having to wait for my trickle charger to charge the battery again. having the use of a high...

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

gas is not really coming out the other end of the pump even isolated, but going back down the return line instead. i guess perhaps it really does take quite a bit of effort for this pump to pull through and out about 8 feet of hose. but why is it going back down the return? leaving me without gas to...

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

it did run fine for the most part when i got it. and has just run down hill to this point.

i guess i could pressure test the pump itself at different points in the line too...not sure that's going to get me anywhere though and might break a good pump.

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

filter to pump line & tank to filter line both hold air, but.... i can't seem to draw from my can at the end of the line by the tank

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

well the end results are proof that no amount of effort has been enough so far. new filter new pump new soft lines all around lines blown out both ways (yes the entire fuel line end to end sectionally) tank dropped and inspected. clean sock. line blown out, both ways. everything put back together, i...

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

to late. i dropped it. (actually easier than finding places to put all the stuff packed inside. fairly windy to so potentially a nightmare of my things blowing away ) blew it off with an air compressor before dumping the gas out into a catch and through a screened funnel into my can. was over 4 gal,...

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*

If it ran fine with the pump pulling fuel from an auxilary tank, it sounds like the line between the pump and tank may be the culprit. Chris read the posts leading up to installing the spare pump. most of page 2. i also no longer have gas to test with. (or money, a running car, food) and it's reall...
