oops...I forgot

I was so busy ranting I forgot to tell you it's a 1975 motobecane mobylette 50v. Could the problem be the carb is varnished from sitting for like 10 years. I dont think it is, but thats only on the part I could see/touch. thanks again. Kurt

Kurt,

Absolutely, you should disassemble the carb and clean everything. See Fred's guide under resources, articles.

Thew main jet in your carb is built in to the hex brass bolt which unscrews from the bottom of the carb directly below the center of the slide. There is a very small hole in the top, drilled through to the crossways hole which allows gas to flow from the float bowl. Look at this with a strong magnifier and make sure the jet is prfectly clean.

The gas goes into the float bowl, but I don't think it goes past that. I'll check to make sure. thanks

That would be a plugged main jet.
