I don't care what's it's called either, however in the interest of making sure I'm futzing with the right thing I just wanted to be on the same page.Amskeptic wrote:Try the mixture screw (little) out a lot of turns with the big idle SPEED (they call it bypass who cares?) screw way out.
OK, did that, and..........Amskeptic wrote:Also, do this fun experiment:
Look at the choke fast idle, it has the teeth that the screw at the top of the throttle lever touches when the choke is on. YOU WILL MAKE IT IDLE if you pull the throttle lever out just enough to clear the little teeth as you rotate the choke plate lever (it will be in the push direction).
It ran very nicely. In fact, it ran awesome.Amskeptic wrote:Please let me know how nicely it ran with you manually applying the choke just right.
Sweet Baby Jesus, it ran awesome.
It even cut out and quit when I removed the wire from the wire from the solenoid. Just like you said it should.
Though it doesn't appear to be "diagonally oriented," I'm pretty sure you mean the pilot jet that's #34 in the diagram (again, just making sure we're on the same page).......Amskeptic wrote:This will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the idle circuit is clogged. I think it is crap behind the pilot jet on the right, the one that is diagonally oriented.
So now I'm going to take the carb off and re-clean it, because evidently I didn't do it right the first time.
Yessir, you are indeed correct. Fun, confusing and a little frustrating, but fun all the same.Amskeptic wrote:By the way. There is no more fun than this.
I'll let you know what happens when I get the carb back on.........
