Savage throttle....

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I've been having problems keeping my savage 25 to idle properly. I have the stock reciever and there is a throttle control but when i turn that knob it adjusts the brake. I have adjusted the servo horn to that the carburator stays a bit open but then when the truck gets going the motor sounds funny, and when i push the brake the engine shuts off. I run the engine rich and maybe thats the problem....

very common...

the problem with your truck is that you have a false idle...the idle is adjusted on youre carb not with youre servo or servo linkage what is happening is that your carb is shutting completely when you hit youre brakes...youre idle screw is either on the front or the rear of your carb usually on a slight angle directly into the carb....... its just a bump stop for the carb barrel to prevent it from closeing all the way..good luck hope this helps
