Z watching your video was like you had Parkinson . At least he put the phone down for most of it . :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Here ya go ,first actual fire up & staying running vid after the engine sat for a few years ,ITS ALIVE!...:cool:

So Z called me out as being the video critic . Ya need to hold still a little bit. But why were you trying to adjust the carb. With out the expansion chamber the settings are going to be wayyyy off.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

The carb needs kitted ,it will flood as it sits ,but once I open the needles up after I start it ,then it stays running ,I
remember now a few years ago ,that it was happening ,that why I quit running it ,that is why it doesn't return back
to idle ,an caused me to wreck ,that is why I was playing with the sets ,wasnt tuning!
Here is another vid. ,it is flooding ,an it is the carb. the tank is venting like it should ,so there is no built up pressure in
the tank forcing fuel!


I am quite happy that it will still run with the way the carb is ,at least I know what the issue is an it will stay running ,
but will not attempt to drive it until I get another new carb or fix this one!

I drilled some venting holes in the bell ,an scuffed up the inside with emery cloth ,the holes were easy ,didn't even
have to measure & mark them ,I just used those two center holes in the mount for a guide an drilled across from
each other all away around n using one of the brace legs as a guide!....:cool:
