Re: Garelli carb won't pic up fuel

start w/ the fuel line. work your way down. is the fuel actually going into the carburetor? is the petcock working properly? is the tank rusty? you might need an inline fuel filter. if no fuel is getting into your carburetor, that's the problem.

also dissasemble and clean the carburetor while you're at it.

Is your manifold clogged?

Look for the possibility of a leak in the lower end of your engine. 2 strokes use the vacuum created in the lower end when the piston goes up to draw air through the carburator. If the crank seals are shot the engine won't suck, and that sucks.

Dan,

Check for plugged exhaust. No gozintas = no gozoutas.

Also, are you absolutely sure that your "new" carb is good?

where are you squirting gas in to make it run? if it runs fine after you squirt gas in, then the problem is before that point, right? run a step-by-step diagnostic of everything between your gas tank and that point. then do it again.
