I am having trouble replying, so here it goes again. I am not sure of the engine performance
or revs. The problem seems to be a carb problem in that it stumbles when I open the throttle
where it wants to die like it is getting too much air and not enough gas. What I can't under
stand is why this problem goes away after about two minutes. Don't this propeller slippage.
Any thoughts? Oh, I did rebuild the carb late last year. Dave
Best way is to get a kit, strip it all the way down and clean everything with carb cleaner, blow dry with compressed air and make sure all the little orifaces are clear, reassemble using the old needle and spring.
Thanks for your info which I assume means a carb rebuild. I will do that. However, while I wait for a kit, I am concern about your info on the possibility of the impeller slipping. It there a way to rule that in or out? Thanks
If it was cavitation you would know it. Would feel like a slipping clutch. Only way to check it is with a feeler gauge to check impeller to wear ring clearance. If your not going to pull the pump, you might be able to pull the intake grate and reach in that way.
