Sometimes it will - sometimes it won\'t !

I finally got the 'Pony' carb idleing pretty good and got it to shut off (most of the time ) when I turned the key instead of having to pop the clutch in gear - Actually it was running pretty good. It sat over night at work - started it in the morning and warmed it up before I hit the road thinking that would help with the carb icing I always get !! But NOOOOO - the thing would not idle at all - running ruff and blowing blue smoke at the stop light !!!!???? I had to stop for the carb ice - that cleared up like usual but still would not idle at all. Thats when I niticed the light blue smoke that was not there before. I had to baby it home using the parking brake at the stops. Now this afternoon it is running fine again ?????????? What the *&^% ?????
I tried all of what I have read from you guy's - also going back and reading the seach pages.
Could it still be dirt in that carb ???????? [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: Sometimes it will - sometimes it won\'t !

Some of the air bleed passages in those carbs are pretty small . Take it apart and clean the snot out of it with the best cleaner you can find then finish it off with good and dry compressed air . The biggest problem these days is finding carb cleaner worth buying thanks to the Eco Nazis...

For what its worth, Mac, the Pony carb on my rig was disassembled and thoroughly cleaned no less than 4 times before it actually got CLEAN and worked right. It's not so much all the obvious places, but like Sarge said its all the really little passages in there where a chunk of rust or particle of dirt or some other crud can lodge and mess up the flow. Even if you clean out a passage that had obvious dirt in it you can just be loosening more crap up to flow around and stick somewhere else. it doesnt take much!
