The propshaft turns freely with ease. No luck getting the lower leg off tonight though. Will attempt tomorrow when I've got more time.

Hi guys,

Been a while. Got round to doing some more work on the engine recently. Since my last post I've changed the waterpump kit and replaced some of the old and cracked fuel/breather hoses. It's running much better now but still isn't perfect. It's great to start with but then after about 5minutes and the engine's warm, it struggles to rev properly.



Apologies for the shocking quality but you can just make out then when I go to increase the revs, it's almost stalling as if there is a lack of fuel being supplied to the engine.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Cheers.
J.

Are you just revving it via the carb linkages. that wont work as it doesnt adjust the timing . you need to reev it vai the throttle or the small throttle lever on the box. dont do it from the carb linkages.
Mine doesnt like that at all.

Ahhh. That makes a lot of sense, thanks jezza. Yeah I had been trying both but was mainly using the carb linkages to rev it so that I was able to see what was going on at the same time. It did seem better with the throttle but now I know, I'll only try it that way from now on.

Thanks a lot mate.
