PA50 Runs with no air filter but...

It actually sounds very normal when the air filter is removed. But when I put it back in it will not accelerate like it should and wouldn't even idle. What could be wrong? The compression is normal.

Is it the right air filter or one you made? Check the idle.

My guess is that your carb is just running too rich, and when you pull the filter off the fuel/air mixture leans out. Adjust your carb with the filter on, and lean it out a little bit. Check Fred's guide for help. Should be in there.
