Iâ€™ve just joined the forum. Iâ€™m rebuilding a 1987 Honda Big red, having trouble with a Chinese carb the previous owner put on it. It keeps flooding after running good for a while then wonâ€™t start. Any help?
First thing to check is whether your choke cable/starter valve is seating properly.
The aftermarket carb choke and throttle linkages now I’ve seen dont seem to mate properly to stock cables.
Maybe the choke is not closing all the way which means the cable is binding or too short for the carb starter valve and not allowing the valve to drop back in to normal position.
Thanks, I took the bowl off and the float was sticking. It ran good for a while then started sputtering like it was running too rich. I have found an Oem carb on eBay I plan to buy. This thing is crazy and making me say bad words.
