°reaker Points
If carbureter loads up after considerable service, check float level. Wear on lip of float lever will raise float level. Before adjusting float, be sure float lever pin is firmly seated. Reset float level by bending lip of float lever away from needle to raise level, or bend lip toward needle to lower float level. Bend vertical lip of float only.
If motor stalls while idling, set throttle lever adjusting screw so motor runs approximately 300 r. p. m. Then set Idle adjustment screw to specifications. If these adjustments do not correct the trouble, remove idle orifice tube and plug assembly. Clean tube and passages with compressed air.
If acceleration Is not satisfactory remove pump jet and clean with compressed air. However, it is usually advisable to replace the pump jet, as its cost is nominal. All jets must be seated gasoline tight. Poor acceleration may be due to damaged or worn plunger leather in accelerating pump, sediment in pump cylinder or clogged intake ball check at bottom of pump cylinder and discharge ball check in discharge passage. If plunger is removed from cylinder, use care in installing to avoid damage to plunger leather.
