Well Guys – this is one for the books…
I have a old Super Tiger 45 with a NEW Carburator and it was tuned up to a ‘T’ – until I went flying – the first two flights were fine and then on the third attempt … it just wouldn’t keep running…
All the field tuning I could do wouldn’t solve the problem, a new glow plug – ineffective…
So I went to my Engine Guru – after a short explanation and demonstration – he looked closely at the carb – and declared that the new carb wasn’t seated properly!
The NEW Carb in the OLD Engine didn’t quite fit – the shaft was too long by – ‘a bit’ and my options were to grind off 1-2mm or add an extra grommet to keep the shaft from bottoming out.
I added the grommet and the engine tuned up nicely… this is a hobby of millimeters.
Time for a beer!
Life is either a daring adventure...
