anyone here still messing with the PONY carbs???

I'm having some issues with mine, and I'm trying to decide if I could rebuild it, or just step up to a Webber.
Is any one here still messing with them, or have they pretty much gone to the wayside???

i think most people gave up on them due the availability. the harley carb is an easier swap and easier to tune....even the webber has lost a lot of popularity lately

Contact Sarge. He tinkered around with the one I am running on my #2 rig. That thing runs strong. Jim

I haven't seen/heard from Sarge in forever. Been wondering what he's up to.

I'll probably go old school and get a webber....lol I'd love to run one of the new my-side set ups, or even propane but just don't have the funds for that right now.

Yea, me either. Been thinking about going with a different set up all together.

"Is any one here still messing with them, "

Well, if you count tripping over it when I go in that corner of the garage, I'm still messing with one....

But since Sarge fixed me up with a Weber a couple of years ago, all I've done is stubbed my toe on the Pony.

Sorry to resurrect an old post, but I've been away awhile.

My pony has been flawless since it was installed back in '00 by Wildweasel. To this day it still starts and runs flawlessly, even at -20 degrees. The Zuk doesn't see much wheeling anymore, unless it's working around the farmhouse or plowing the driveway. I love the Pony carb. Just my $0.02

Wow Mark glad to see you are still around. Hope all is well. My pony runs great. More power and sips gas. It has that erratic idle thing. Lately though, It is very hard to start. Seems like the gas is draining out after it is shut off. Takes a while for gas to get to the carb. The rig is going off the road in the next couple weekes so maybe I will pull it and take a look. Any suggestions? Jim

Mexican carb re-build??

Run your rig til warmed... remove airbox/cleaner... rev up... spray gobs o' Berrymans til it ALMOST dies... then put yer hand over the carb intake (draft tube) til she dies... re-start... repeat

I've done this 2-3 times and had a carb that's barely running blow everything out and run great afterwards.

Don't laugh... it's cheap & easy
