PW50 problems

Recommended Posts

I have a "83 pw50 that i fixed this winter, but it won´t run properly.

I have a new carburetor, air filter etc, but it seems to not get enough petrol.

 

It usually starts, but only run for a few seconds and the die.

Sometimes it runs for up to 30 seconds (wow) and die.

 

I´m running out of ideas here, any suggestions of what to try next?

I mounted a brand new carb an petcock yesterday, same problem as the original one...
i managed to start it after a lot of kicking and by switching to "drive" and hold the throttle fully open.

it was a little reluctant to increase rpm but after 30 seconds it sounded almost normal on idle except som problems when i revved it.

it worked "fine" for a couple of minutes and then died again.
it would not start again...

frustrating stuff, my son really want to ride this thing  sad.gif
