5 reasons to check your acclerater pump.
reason #5. It might swallow mud clogging your carb
4. These carbs are a total bitch to clean out.
3. Getting stuck on a trail where you have to try to clean the carb out with toilet paper is no fun.
2. DannyL get down here with those Pony carbs,,,,,
And the number 1 reason.......
Can't lead a zook run with no truck!!!!!
Seriously Check the rubber boot for your accelerater pump to make sure you don't have a tear in it.
I turned a perfectly running stock carb into a clump of mud filled pot metal in seconds...
Worked most of yesterday just to get it runnning at all. still need to fix a hesitation off of idle. That and
I think I ruined the main jet/electric mabobber... It was soooo full of mud. I had a rebuilt/remanufactered carb
but it didn't work either, Turns out it is missing some of the springs in the accelerater pump area. Oh well
time to start getting the bits to swap to the pony on friday or sat am...
On other news I was running the 2nd trail for zookin'2k (Thats where the mud pit is... Up to the hood in places
love them lockers..) and it is still as hardcore as ever. (Of course its 3 for 3 as far as beating me goes..
1st broke steering linkage,2nd ate the transmission, 3rd carb. someone is trying to tell me something..)
