Hi, I am back with 2 more questions. Earlier I ask about reverse on this motor. I got the motor to run. I think the starting problem was mainly a cracked fuel hose where the fuel line enters through the case. I replaced all the fuel lines and using an electric drill to start it rather than pulling the starter rope it started. I now have two other questions.
I am testing this motor in a 55 gallon drum 2/3 filled with water.
!. How do I set the the forward, neutral,and reverse positions? When the motor starts it appears to be in forward gear even though the lever is in the neutral position. also,when I shift to reverse it will not stay in that position.
2. On the carburetor I am aware of two settings, a lean and rich screw and and accelerator settings (lever rides against a plate that is controlled by the throttel handel). I can get these adjustments so the motor starts but when I change to the slow setting the motor dies after a few seconds or at the fast setting it appears to run too fast.
Hope to get answers soon as I going to sell it to raise funds to buy four tires for my truck.
