Default Re: Another Build from an abandon in the park bike

Well I worked on the carb again today and still could not get it to run proper. Then at the end of the day as I was getting frustrated with this thing, I noticed that as I was spraying starter fluid around the carb to find the leak (this was after making a new intake gasket, I was hearing a sound like air leaking) I noticed that the fluid was dripping on the engine block at the seam and disappearing very quick. I then tried to just spray on the block and there it was the leak. Bad crankcase gasket! Now I have to dissemble the whole engine to get it rite. You know I was thinking of getting a GruBee engine this time and decided to get these instead, I have the one on the Green Hornet that runs like the wind. Oh well I guess it is not too big a job. Have fun, Dave

PS: Still working on the Honda carb.
Its just a job. (Link) My shop is in the lower R/H corner.
