I know what the choke is for, but the rev difference between hot and cold engine is to big. After following the tips on the AMAL home site on tuning the idle I got it better, but it is still a to large difference between hot and cold engine idle.Always adjust the tickover on a hot engine, never a cold one, that's what the choke is for.
Thank You Panda! I have set the timing to 11,6 mm B.T.D.C. fully advanced, and the mec. is not sticking. I am using 20w-50 Kendall oil, is that ok? So I think what you say about the idle mixture is right! I think this is to lean.Just make sure you are not running the ignition a tad too advanced. ( maybe teh advance /retard mechanism is sticking ? ) If not then maybe richen the idle mixture.
As an oddball question? what oil are you using, it ought to be a 20/50 unless you in extreme hot or cold place.
Also check tappet clearances. ( look for too tight).
You are only looking for a small fault.
wow, I did not know you could still get Kendall, Anyone knowI am using 20w-50 Kendall oil,
I use the Kendall GT-1 20w-50 c/o ConocoPhillips.wow, I did not know you could still get Kendall, Anyone know
who bought Kendall out a few years ago? I remember it being
pulled from the shelves here as it was just a rebottled product
when they got bought out and no one wanted Kendall then.
Yup, that would be my guess. Air leak leans out the mixture and engine RPM goes up.check for a leak at the intake (hot)
I always use start gas for this, and no leek! After fine-tuning the carb, I have got the idle down on hot engine, but still a bit to high, but maybee it is as good as I get it?Instead of WD40, use carb cleaner. Spray it around all intake connections with the engine idling, and if the rpm's change dramatically, you have an air leak. Best on a warm engine.
