water in your gas

Re: Vapor lock

Super common with high temps. Shielding your carb from engine heat will help, as will pouring water over your carb when the problem occurs.

There was a vintage VW show/swap in Ypsi last weekend. Saw several old bugs on the side of the road with... you guessed it, vapor lock from the 90+ temps.

Re: Vapor lock

Happens on my Murray all the time. I don't think the gas cap is vented enough, it seems to build up a vacuum in the tank. Sometimes if it starts dying like that I can crack the gas cap open a bit and it will keep the gas flowing and the ped going.

Re: Vapor lock

that used to happen to my PC50 too. It would bog down with a full tank and run great on 3/4. I drilled a couple of tiny holes in the cap and it was solved.

Re: Vapor lock

humm so how can i fix this problem permentlly.....jsut vent my tank?

I think so, when my Jawa starts to pick up speed because it is running lean, I know I have to loosen my gas cap cause it isn't venting enough.
