Points Gap?

Post by ShootingFish » Tue Jun 06, 2017 11:56 pm

Recommended gap?

Running a bit rough last night... pretty warm outside and going at a pretty good clip... all of a sudden started to backfire and then lose power.

Going to also replace the fuel filter, I had just put fresh gas into it, but who knows what I swished around in the tank after sitting all winter.

Clean the Carb jets, Points = 0.4mm, change the fuel filter if it is full of rubbish. If it full of rubbish consider draining and cleaning the petrol tank as there is little else that is as annoying as having to stop whilst out to clean the Carb jets because it starts coughing and spluttering and lacking even more power than normal!

Change the condensor as well if things don't improve once you have cleaned the Carb jets.
