Off idle stumble

Postby the draggin » Sat Aug 27, 2016 10:08 pm



I FINISHED REBUILDING THE CARBS AND PUT NEW ACCELLERATOR PUMP NEEDLE AND SEATS CLEANED THE SCREENS CLEANED AND AIR (IN A CAN) BLEW OUT ALL THE INTERNAL PASSAGES AND INSTALLED NEW SLIDES/DIAPHRAGMS. NOW AFTER REINSTALL AND SET UP THERE IS NO SURGE AND NO SPUTTERING BUT I NOW HAVE AN OFF IDLE/PART THROTTLE STUMBLE. I'M NOT SURE WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. MY AIR MIX SCREWS WERE SET AT ONE AND A QUARTER TURNS ON THE LEFT CARB AND TWO AND A HALF ON THE RIGHT. I SET THEM INITIALLY TO TWO AND A QUARTER EACH. ACCELERATOR PUMP IS WORKING AND SLIDES SEEM TO BE OKAY TOO. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED. SORRY ABOUT THE ALL CAPS I DIDN'T NOTICE TILL I WAS NEARLY FINISHED TYPING.
