moped engine

Sounds like the J-17 clevis bracket to me.

Re: moped engine

It is a little vague, Perhaps some more specific sympoms would help. four stroking, stalling etc

Re: moped engine

First.............did you replace the spark plug? Second.....is the muffler possibly plugged with carbon? Third........could the points have slipped shut or the throttle cable not be adjusted right? DON-OHIO

the thing is it runs great when it is moving. Up on the stand that is. once it comes off it dies. Also it can be driven but when you stop it also stalls. Is there any possibility that it is a clutch. when it is running it tends to make a squeeling sound! Thanks for the help!

Re: moped engine

mess with the idle adjust screws, and if that doesnt work, clean the carb and exaust thuroughly

Re: moped engine

Sounds like the clutch. You can drive aslong as you dont stop. Correct?
