Missing out after 4 miles, CHAPTER 2


New Member
It sure acts like it is running out of gas; surge, die; surge, die; then if finally dies and won't start again until it sets (or sits) for awhile. Neighbor "borrowed" a supposedly good fuel pump and that does no good either. He has a new one ordered that will arrive Tuesday (July 5). In the meantime, I tested the ignition with a test spark plug and it appears a little weak, but about the same as my wife's Club Car. I tried an auxiliary gravity fuel tank; same results.

1. Is some pressure required on the fuel line to open the float in the carb? (so that the gravity gas tank would not work)

2. Is there a way to test the spark (in line) while the engine is running to prove that the spark is "always there" rather than intermittent?

3. What next???????????

Thanks, neighbor Joe

the carb will work fine on a IV bottle, any auto parts will sell inline spark testers, handy little tools
