got my carb rebuild now........

Recommended Posts

Now I need some settings and maybe the "what not to do for Gods sake" before I start dis-assembling. Anything guys. I see there is an idle adjust cable Is there any other settings on this carb? My drain screw appears well used :(

My advice, is before you disassemble be sure to take some pics of the current configuration.  When you remove the needles and jets, count the turns for example on the pilot jet....  be very careful cleaning the components as not to damage the rubber parts, such as the diaphragm or O-rings.  Just take your time for disassembly, cleaning, ane reassembly and you should be good to go.  I also recommend watching a couple of videos on cleaning a carb (for do's and dont's), you can find some on youtube easily.

Ultrasonic cleaners are great but they don’t always get the heavy stuff out. You still need to get in there to clean the jets/small ports out.

My experience with any carb is to carefully document the removal and have some sort of guidance document for where the gaskets go and how they are oriented. You can spend a lot of time troubleshooting something because a gasket was put on backwards. Documentation is the key.

I have an ultrasonic cleaner, they work really well.  However, Frank is correct, you must do the heavy cleaning first before using the ultrasonic.  I would say they are mostly not necessary for a 1 off carb cleaning.

      Hey just picked up another scrambler 850 was told the tps was bad.  This atv has been beet to hell.  Wiring has been tinkered with the crankcase has been replaced recently and the motor rebuilt (can see horizontal scores thru spark plug hole where it’s just been honed out and rebuilt)
      my guess is it was ragged out till the motor blew a rod and rebuilt but the clown that did it couldn’t get it to run again and sold it.  When I bought it it would pulse and smoke black at idle and die with throttle.
      New tps installed and it won’t run period.  I went to celebrate it and I’m getting 5 volts on 2 of the 3 wires running to the tps.  Is this normal and if so how should I celebrate it?

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      What's a good size to start a 10 year old on?
    • By cgilley
      Ran it out of gas last month... Works fine for 3 or so days then refuses to start.... Changed out the sparkplug and it will run for 15 or so seconds before shutting off.... Cleaned out the fuel system and injector and it misses when idling as well as shutting off at idle every so often... It is giving me no other issues and sounds and runs fine while riding... Only issue is cutting off at idle.....
      Ideas anyone??

      Does anybody know what the standard adjustment is for the air screw on the carb? How many turns out from full in?
      Cheers,
