Fingers crossed! Anyway, it's my guess that if you allow the float bowl to fill completely after turning on the petcock, and then pull up the choke knob, it should start on one or two kicks. Push the choke knob back down when the engine sounds like it is laboring, and wants the choke off.Be sure that throttle cable isn't getting stuck, and be ready to hit the kill button if necessary.
Excellent!I'm very happy to hear that report. I forgot that plastic jugs don't have petcocks! With the increased compression, it will be very important to listen for ping when you get it out on the road, under load on throttle, or up hills.It may not ping, but I would like you to be listening for it, just in case.Obviously, if you do hear any ping, please avoid it by backing off the throttle to make it go away, and we will address the solutions then.I'm feeling very good about this.
Congrats 2CV! Well done! Can't wait to hear how she flies down the road. A couple of things your post reminded to share. 1. The pilot screw is very sensitive. I find 1/8 turns covers a fair range. 2. Your 2nd kick starting was the same prob I had. I found if I pulled choke, kicked once resulted in nothing, I push the choke back down and then she fires. Sometimes I've had to clear the chamber. But now I'm a 1 kick starter. 3. I got some extra TM32 brass if you need it. A 27.5 pilot, a P2 needle jet (order by error and failed to notice) and a few extra mains. Just say the word....Congrats again!
The world holds its breath... well some of us, anyway! I like the steady tick-over on a tuned motor, it bodes well for something usable on the street.A.
