''75 Puch- Accelleration

Gary Trezza /

Thanks to everyone on this forum for their previous help. I need your input again. I now have my little Puch running O.K, but here's the dilemma: I have rebuilt the Carb, new fuel line/filter, new air box, new petcock valve, new spark plug w/ correct gap, experimented with five different size carb jets, new Biturbo exhaust, new tires, new brakes, new cables. 3000 original miles. I've done a lot, as you can tell. The lil' sucker idles great, starts first try. Prob?: It seems to be quite sluggish to accellerate, although it will top out at over 35MPH. It also seems to be much more sluggish climbing hills than I remember. I thought it might want to run richer, accounting for the experimentation with the larger jets (original size #54 all the way up to size #62, (for all you Puch-Heads like me). I'm at wit's end. I need expert help. What do ya think, fellow pedders?

Hi Gary

If you still have it.. you might want to put the old muffler back on to see if the midrange comes back.. just as a test...quite often those pipes will take a little off the bottom/mid range.
