Hey guys, I recently bought a 1978 Puch Maxi Luxe Hi-Torque that didn't start. I had to replace the plug, cylinder, piston, the stock head was still ok to use, carburetor, and petcock. All were replaced with stock replacements from treatland. Air filter is stock.
I just got it to start, but when I do, it just accelerates until I hit the kill switch. It's on the kickstand so it doesn't move, but the RPMs are don't stop going up until I stop it. Usually, I'd keep it running while trying to tune it but I don't want to run it at all right now because of the new cylinder, even for a few seconds to look at it.
The throttle cables havent been changed but they don't seem to be stuck in the open position or anything. The carburetor was bolted on right from treatland because I just wanted to get it started before anything else. I'm going to clean it tonight, try again, and let you know how it goes. Figured the float might be stuck?
Any insight that will save me some time would be greatly appreciated.
