hi i am shannon i will help on this issue
have you set the choke opening yet?
i think that is the problem. it looks like it is getting stuck
the way to test for this is to manualy open the choke just a little
if it runs smother that the issue
but its a new carb
is there a chocke relay?
yes there may be i.ll have to look it up
but if it runs bad when you first start it up that will not be the problem
why would make the chock get stuck?
or not opening
the choke heater relay will heat up the choke andto open it after 30 secounds
first the choke is opening if it run ok after warming up
i need to know how it runs you first start the engine
but it takes too long. some times i have to run like 20miles and then smooths up.
ok can you start the engine and hold the choke open just enough to idle good?
if so then you will need to look at the vacuum pod
there should be a vacuum pod that opens the chock just after the engine starts
yes. what is the vacuum pod
it is on the choke linkage it round and has a vacuum line to it
there is a screw in the center of it
that screw adjust the choke opening after the engine starts
ok i know now.
you need to see how mush choke opening makes the engine run smoth then adjust the screw to open the chock when running
do this with the engine running
ok. this for auto chocke?
you will see the choke open as you adjust the screw
ok. i will do this tomorrow morning and i will get back to you.
s for adjusting should have came with the new carb
ok. thank you. i will let you know what happened
the instruction for adjusting the choke should have came with the new carb
please find that paper
the shop did it.
the shop put it in. they got the carb.
the shop should adjust the carb right for free it part of the install
i would take it back
make them do it
unless you no longer trust them
they told me they couldn't do more. they said they couldn't fix it.
i don't want to pay them just to do that. i don't trust them no more
that,s very bad if they can,y adjust a choke or if the carb is defitive it there resopnablity to make it right
i know. but i would like to try myself to learn about this carburator.
you may want to get the recpit for the carb incace you need to return it to the parts store
you are right i will do that.
