Re: 69 won't go past 2000rpms when under load
Well, I took the carb apart for a rebuild since I had no idea how old it was or if it was ever done. It had carbon build up on the throttle blades, but overall didn't look to bad. However, the filter screens in the carb had all kinds of little particles on them and when I drained the carb, the gas was brown in color instead of the golden color. Not sure what caused that, but I'm definitely going to check the fuel filter and crank it over a few times to check fuel fuel and the gas color. Now I'm setting the floats according to the manual. When you flip the top plate over and check the floats, there is suposed to be 7/16" between the gasket and the bottom of the float. That measurement was about right, but when you flip it over and check the total travel, that was way off. Its supposed to be 15/16, however my total travel is over an inch and a half. Glad I took it apart. Either way, once I get it back together, I'll definitely check the fuel filter and fuel flow. I have a new MSD Blaster coil that I kept as a spare, so if the problem is still present after my fuel system checks out, i'll try that.
