OK Don.. or Chris.
my jawa.. 77.. firing, its got gas ,, and compression.. but after about three minutes. it dies to a stop.. and then won't start.. i'm trying to problem solve this.. but i think its an experience thing.the carb is clean ready to go..i'm thinking its the rings.. i haven't had to changes the rings on this bad boy or any of my bikes.. but is that a typical sign. of bad rings.. i know you guys aren't familar with the bike.... but this problem i think can apply to any bike.. its not electircal.. ether.. what about the clutch? as for centrifical clutchs go.. i just put some make shift pads i got from a clutch place.. and they fit great. a litttle tight right now. but i think after they wear down and be fine.. could that be the problem.. i mean the clutch is really tight.. could it be killing the engine.. cause it gets to tight. because of heat. and can i foul a plug.. but it still be brown.. and have spark.. i mean.. my other bikes .. are running solid. I feel good about my mechanic skills. but this thing is pissing me off.. i just can't seem to figure this thing out.. check out . what i working with ^^
