i own a stock 77 garelli ssxl
14 12 dellorto 56 jet
problem: starts easy first time, dies when i come to a stop, loss of power
i milled the head 1 mm or more
that increased compression and gave me more power (very happy)
can feel more resistance when starting
i cut off 6 inches of extra exhaust manifold that stuck in to exhaust (no change)
removed intake plastic cover
plug chopped (more power)
PROBLEM STARTED and slowly got worse
i recently cleaned the 1 speed transmission
it was loaded with crap smeared on the bell
i even sanded down the rubber clutch 1 mm b/c i thought this was problem with idle
clutch grabs well when starting but the added resistance after i milled the head is gone
problem got worse
i noticed right after running it there were bubbles in the tranny oil
is this normal?
found air leak between head and cylinder
fixed that. no improvement
sounds like ring slap
also recently found strange build up on head. it wasnt there before. why is it glossy?
i also cleaned the carb about a thousand times and put an in line filter. idle hole is clean blasted out both directions with carb cleaner, and poked with a wire
im considering is my base gasket bad?
piston rings? (edited)
