carb - accelerator pump jet thingie
« on: 14:16, Fri 22 April 2011 »
ok so im trying to resolve my idling issues. I have the carb off and I just want to double check, I remember reading in previous posts somewhere that the accelerator flap bit inside the carb base should be set using a 5mm drill bit. Now I want to know whether the 5mm means that the flap is sitting at 5mm when not accelerating, or is it when accelerator is open full that the flap opens to 5mm?
 :?

cheers

When the throttle is open 5mm the acc pump jet lever needs to be fully pressed, nothing to do with where throttle butterfly sits on idle or full throttle.

If you got idling issue i doubt this will have much to do with it.

Cheers mark. Yeah im aware my idle problems are nowt to do wi this, I have an air leak at carb or a shagged carb. Gonna get a rebuild kit for it and see. I was only asking, as I had the carb off and wanted to make sure that everything else on it was set ok.
