440 crawel engine running.

Post by Boree » Thu May 21, 2020 2:19 pm

Hello,
I am restoring my old 440 crawel , I just make a video with the engine running. just rebuild the carb, and for me it doesn't run very well, it was running the same way before too.
Also , change the spark plug wire and the coil .
that s the youtube link for my quick video.
let me know what do you think

Sounds like it's running on both cylinder but may have a fuel problem. Seems to have a slight gallop or surge. (rpm up and down) I don't remember what adjustments the carb has on it but I'd try to richen the mixture. Possibly water in the fuel.(try dry gas-can't hurt)
