Finally got a chance to mess around with the WC I bought a few weeks ago. Took the carb off and cleaned it out a bit, put it back on, tried to start it, no go. Then I noticed the venturi sitting on the work bench. Put the carb back together correctly, she fired right up. Have been having some trouble with it dying on me. Seems like there's some crud coming throught the fuel lines. It starts right back up after it dies though. Spent an hour or so scraping and degreasing. Could use some more of that. Still needs to be rewired and have all the other little stuff done. I'm just glad she actually runs!

Remove the fuel bowl housing from the gas tank and make sure the inlet to the bowl housing is not full of crud. They take in gas from the bottom of the tank. Flush out the tank good when you have the bowl housing out.
When the inlet to the housing is plugged the engine will run a minute then stop. After a few minutes the gas from the tank will slowly push gas out of the bowl to the carburetor and the engine will run untill the carburetor goes dry because of resticted flow from the tank.

Hope this is the cause of the engine dying.

Today's Featured Article - Chores - by Frank Young. The ceaseless passing of time! It is at once our friend and our enemy. It measures our progress and it makes us old. Like most features of our life, few things are all good or all bad, and most such judgments depend on our own perspective or viewpoint. In our particular hobby, we enjoy the nostalgic return to the days of our youth as we recreate many of the scenes that took place on the family farm that served as the stage for the first few acts of the play that is our live ...
