She Rumbles Again
Got the ol XL100 out finally.. for the year.. Put in a new cylinder shaft.. well .. new to me, because the cam adjuster was stripped in the old one.. andi had one on hand. Cleaned up the carb and everything, got her all back together. and i still got the same trouble she had before.
This isnt easy to explain. but here goes. Its like she has two different modes of revvin. when you start her, she wont idle .. but she'l stay in the low revs if u keep her there with throttle. but she wont rev up. however. .if u play with her, she gets past the crackin and poppin, and she's perfect in the mid-high revs, as long as you keep her there. as soon as she goes below that mark again, you gotta play wit her again to get her to rev. I think it has to do wit the gap on the points and the spark plug. a long time ago, she went funny, and i had to keep the gap on the plug REALLY small to keep her runnin right., If the gap was the right size, she wouldnt rev up. .she'd pop and crack and stuff. I think the ign timing might be wrong too, cause i had to play wit that to get her to go this good. and moving the gap on the points and the gap on the plug makes that mark where she wont rev past higher and lower. .buti cant seem to get it right. . any ideas? thanx
