thanks matt, that screw on the carb worked wonders. artman, thanks for the website too.
a few more questions,
1. should the fuel line be full up with fuel? right now it gets full right at the bottom by the intake of the carb, the rest fo the tube is kinda empty. i got a new fuel filter today and it seems ot be doing a better job than the old one, but i may have to trim the hose down to give it more of a straight shot in. im also trying to get a new petcock.
2. i dont have a battery in right now, but its getting acid added tomorrow and should be in tomorrow, that said, i dont knwo if i am geting a lot of electricity comming out of the magneto. as i get my engine moving, my blinkers will start working, but right now they wont come on while im idleing. will the battery help this? or should i look into a new magneto.
3. seeing how stopping is just as important as going, i think am going to need to get some new breaks. i am goint o take off the wheels and check out the shoes tomorrow. will it be obvious if they are shot?
thanks for the help so far, im psyched about this ped.
