It's running

I finally got the bike to run and then turn off and wait a little bit and it run again. I do need a new battery and I still have to choke it even after it is warm. Not sure about that one. But at least it is running.

Got 4 new 4164 Autolite spark plugs and even though they looked the same with the spark it fires up the bike and actually sounds better, so it was a difference.

Grace and Peace to you!

If you have to choke it's probably running lean.

In lets in more air and out less. It's backwards so out. Try a half turn on each and see what goes. Can't hurt anything.

ok on one side I can get a screwdriver in there to adjust it but on the other side I don't a short enough screwdriver. What do you recommend?

maybe cut a clothes hanger and hammer it flat on one end? Just thinking back to that time I was on a transatlantic and lost the motor in a squal.

A pocket screwdriver works nicely.

...x2 Autolite spark plugs? Seriously?


And again I'll second someone else's post...you need to put all your "issues" under ONE thread...you have questions on stuff all over the forum and it's real hard for us to try and give you some help when you have stuff scattered all over this forum.

NGK iridiums spark plugs are highly recommended here, as are AGM batteries....like wise SeaFoam...

I'll admit I'm at a loss at helping you do to not being able to follow what you have and what you have already done.....

sorry guys. I forget I post something and then repost. I will try to do better. The plugs are temps until I got the bike running and almost on the road. I will get another battery and the other plugs before putting it on the road.

Grace and Peace to you!
