hey thanks ron for the tips for getting my batavus up and running--this forum is by far the best I found. still have a few questions:
will the little rectangular paper acordian $3 car filter(4"x2"x1") i stuck on be ok for the laura m 56 engine?--it is not enclosed in any kind of box (how do i know if it is running to hot, or getting the right mix? i drove about 12 miles today and it seems fine)
it runs much better but why would it consistently hesitate/accelerate--hesitate/accelerate from 0-10mph--but work great after that?
...and finally, this may be a stupid question but is a functioning choke necessary? My choke cable has nothing to connect to at the top end but it starts ok.
