  1. Timing maybe

    Ok will do
  2. Timing maybe

    Ok got to start up well turn key and fires right up turn of and no problems but when cold the gov acts properly and linkage out of motor doesn't get pined in full throttle mod but when engine get warm it than acts up the gov shaft out of motor forces in full power mode and locks motor right up and stalls can't figure out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Timing maybe

    When gov activates and asked for more fuel from carb could it not be a timing issue but a excess if raw fuel in top of piston Why I say this is because it won't start back up right away but than in a minute or less the starter can than turn it over and it fires right up just hope it's not internal gov issue Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Timing maybe

    One thing I didn't check was to see if I sheared the keyway but it starts and ideals after it dyes it seems like it has so much compression won't turn over and restart until I let it sit for two or three minutes than starts right up fine and ideals I moved pic up away and closer still same symptoms I will but the timing light on tonight and see and yes both pins are still there in flywheel Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Engine hunting

    No don't think so but it also ran really bad that is what started the restore come to find out it was my ignition thaat was bad i thought it was blown up but what i found out it was a combo of mis adjusted governer carb high jet and ignition after putting ignition in with the help of chuck from save old iron set the timming correctly i have tweeked the jets on the carb,and throttle cable, just hunts a little bit
  13. C-120 I restored ,sold and just bought back!

  14. Engine hunting

    I restored my c120 with a teky twelve horse ,I rebuilt the carb and if you have read my other post i installed a wells chrysler ignition system in it due to the fact you can't find solid state ignitions any more , i rebuilt the carb when the engine is at mid throttle it hunts but not at idle or full throttle i sprayed throttle shaft with carb cleaner it hunts when i spray it could this be my problem? just don't know why it only hunts at mid throttle other than that it fires right up easy and has great power any one have any idea's Should i take carb all apart and re clean really don't want to
