Hey 2cv, I just wanna chime in my congratulations on a job well done.And for whatever it's worth, My usual start up with the TM32 goes something like this:1.With ignition off, Choke nob up, kick through once. Reset kicker. 2. Choke nob down, Key ON, kick to start.And NO throttle!3. Rev throttle lightly after about 10 seconds of idling.The aforementioned is for cooler days (60F and below) and a cold engine.Warmer than that, I usually only need a 1 kick through (key off) with no choke. Then the starting kick.Most summer days I dispense with the initial primer kick altogether and just go for the money shot.As DanB mentioned, I've also found the air screw very sensitive with only 1/4 turn adjustments needed. as the seasons change.Wishing you all the best!Chuck.
In a minute or two the idle speeds up by itself & wants to be slowed down. Does yours do that?
In a minute or two the idle speeds up by itself & wants to be slowed down. Does yours do that?Yes it does but only by a few hundred rpm's as the engine warms. Even at full operating temps I find that the rpm's will fluctuate from one stoplight to the next somewhat. My sweetspot idle is right at 1500 rpm. That just sounds right to my ear, with the engine neither racing nor laboring to rotate.And as Tom notes, best to set the idle speed with a hot engine. I think you'll find as I have that this carb is flexible enough to give you relatively easy cold starting (once you get your routine down pat). Chuck.
Bummer. Like Ace said, stuff happens. At least it's just a petcock/filter problem, it could be way worse.
This is the petcock. The $40 plus shipping one: http://nfieldgear.com/enfield-store/fuel-tap.html It's gone up $10 since the last catalog I got. I'm in the mood right now to just seal it up permanently (the filter threads) with J-B Weld so I can ride tomorrow.
Wow, those prices are absurd! I paid $20 for a PAIR of petcocks and I bought them in town. Maybe before JB Weld try some Permatex Sealant #1. I used it on my new petcocks and they don't leak a drip.Scottie J
I'll get it all back together later this morning & see how it goes. I want it to dry really well. I don't choose to die in a flaming ball of death today if that cheezy plastic filter falls out
Yeah, that's not quite the sort of Fireball Tom is trying to sell ya! Is your local Fire Department on standby?Regards,A.
