    "Here we go again.

    One of my rebuilt 318s that was running ok when put away in the fall, now stalls when I put it in gear.

    Had the carb apart yesterday - again - all jets clean, clear passages etc.

    Engine sounds good at idle, and revs ok - although there is a bit of hesitation when accelerated quickly - but as soon as it is put into gear it stumbles and stalls.

    I had it running in forward for a bit Friday, but now it won't do anything.

    Should I continue pursuing carb issues or could this be something else?

    Everything was new last season and only got about four hours use.

    Got to get it off the service dock at the marina today.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks"

    Problem solved!

    Short explanation is I figured out how to use the large idle screw in conjunction with the mixture screws on these AFB carbs.

    Lots of power now.

    Anyone wanting the long explanation let me know.

    Our season is now underway up here in the Great White North despite the evil north wind that blows relentlessly this spring.

    Happy Easter everyone.
