Hi everybody, and thanks for reading this. Please bear with me as I'm new to engines and learning as I go, but still quite ignorant.
I have a 1974 Batavus Bronco (dutch). The other day, I think while adding oil to the tank I think I got some shit in there somehow. The moped stopped running, with symptoms of fuel system problems - i.e. it would run for twenty feet, then stall. Then I'd wait, and it would run again a bit, and stall.
So... I took the carburetor off, and cleaned it all out. I sprayed every orifice with carb cleaner and even soaked it over night. Then I rinsed everything out with gasoline, and put it all back together.
Now, the problem seems to be a BIT better, but it's still messed up somehow. I can keep it running if I play with the gas and choke, but it keeps trying to die on me. It also lurches and stuff.... revving the gas-grip doesn't let me GO like before, just moves it a bit, then slows down, etc. However, if I run the bike on the center-stand, it goes no problem... I can spin the wheel indefinitely without it stalling.
(Sorry if I suck at describing this).
Can anybody provide ANY clues as to what my problem is? I'm quite sure I put the carburetor back together properly, yet I'm sure it's a carb problem. The ignition is fine, there is a good spark (it starts with two different spark plugs), etc.
Thanks in advance!
