Hey guys, I’m stumped on this project big bear I picked up from a co-worker. I’ve got it to the point where it will finally idle but still rough, give it throttle and it’s sluggish and kind of that hitting rev limiter type sound, still blows a little black smoke, has no air filter on currently and if I put my hand in front of the carburetor it gets soaked in gas. Gas is not overflowing, taking the muffler off does not make much of a difference.
So far it has a carb kit installed, float adjusted correctly, fuel needle and seat work perfectly, needle clip setting is on the highest notch, mixture screw is at 1 1/2 turns.
New NGK D8ea plug, new coil, nice blue spark finally. Valve clearance is good, 130 p.s.i compression. Any tips on what to check next?
