Customer Question

I have a Lintex Ht 50 QT 26 scooter. Wife parked it two years ago. I want to get it running again. Can you recommend anyone in or around Lexington KY that could repair? I believe it's just carbs are plugged up with old gas and contaminants. It only has 40 hours on it.
Thank you for your time.

Hi John and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, proposed preliminary / user doable (hopeful) tries (if have not been done):

  • • spray/soak the insides of the carb with the air filter temporarily removed using Carburetor Cleaner Spray or equivalent or similar to the product shown HERE;
  • • drain and replace the fuel then add Sea Foam;
  • • use Starting Fluid/Spray when attempting to start.

May have to be done a couple of times and soaking for an extended period of time.

Still and if considering the services of a mechanic, please inquire at Fayette Moped located in Lexington, Kentucky.
