Hi,

I've posted a few times before regarding my 77 Puch Maxi (2hp). It won't run right with the airbox on, only with it off. I really don't want to run the motor without a filter of some sort, and even worse, many of you have told me that it can cause engine damage. Plus, it smokes a lot.

Anyways, in my quest to get this thing running right I took the jet out of the carb. It has the number 58 (or 5-8, hard to read) stamped on it. And the carb has the number 1/14/160 stamped on it.

Do I have the right jet? If not, where do I get the right one? If it is the right one what do I do next? Have already completely disassembled carb, soaked in carb cleaner and blown out with an air compressor. New fuel line and filter installed too.

Thanks, Bill Johsnon
