Sammy Troubles

The poblem started happening only when it was damp and then progressed into a full time problem. When I start the thing it jumps to higher idle as suppose to but then drops right off and stops running. This use to happen on just the first start but now it happens the second, and third. I have to hold the gas down a big to keep the engine running.
I am not sure what it is but have to figure it out none the less.

Re: Sammy Troubles

My old jeep used to do that. I sold the jeep before I fixed the problem. I had to put the petal to the floor and wait for the engine to finally stop coughing and run right..

Re: Sammy Troubles

Sounds like it's time for a carb rebuild. Could be the float needs adjusted, or clogged line (check or replace fuel filter). Is air intake clear? Air/fuel mixture?
Also, check the choke . . if it's the original automatic spring, it could be messing up.

Re: Sammy Troubles

The problem you have may be a head gasket blown, dirt in the carb(bypass jet) or carb blockage due to age. Good luck

Re: Sammy Troubles

Need more info when you say " jumps to higher idle"
are refering to idle up . Is idle up doing this and or
does engine temp change any of conditions you listed.
