Play with the idle screw.

Re: bing carb, help

played around with the screw and it ran for about 30 sec, then it sounded like it ran out of gas.

Re: bing carb, help

if you hold the accelerator will it stay on? if not then check the gas line for kinks> if no kinks then

disconnect hose from carb open petcock and see if gas flows steady> if so unscrew float boal and connect gas hose open petcock and when the float<little donut looking thing> is hanging down gas should start to flow and when its up it should stop.try that then check back.

disconnected the fuel line and open the petcock and nothing came out. i just cleaned it so i didnt think that was the problem. ill take it apart and do it again and pray to jah that its the problem.

Re: bing carb, help
