I decided to make my own gasket really quick for my 1980 Sachs Suburban which has the 505/1D motor. I went to start it and it almost ghost rided away. Luckily I hit the kill switch in time. This happened immediately after putting in the homemade float bowl gasket.
I kind of suck at cutting out gaskets. Could the sloppy gasket be pushing against something that would cause the throttle to be stuck wide open?
The cable is fine. I lubed it and all that. I can push it in and pull it out. When I push it into the carb, I just see the end of the cable when I look into the carb, but it doesn't have the butterfly on it. Just the cable and a little barrel on it.
Did I lose a spring or something? If so, anyone have a good tutorials on taking apart a Sachs 12mm Bing? I am not sure if I can get to the throttle plate, butterfly, whatever you wanna call the little door that opens and closes when you twist the throttle.
