  • 841 Runs Rough Then Stops
  • I posted a while back about my 841. Had the starter rebuilt (I supplied the rebuild kit and the labor cost me $43).

    Now it cranks, but runs really rough and dies, almost like it's flooding (lots of smoke and gas smell). I've got a steady fuel stream when I remove the plug under the carburetor. Checked the points and they are fine.

    I rebuilt the carburetor last year as part of the restoration, but I'm wondering if there might be something clogged in there?

  • If you haven't already, I would take a screwdriver handle and tap the carb about at the fuel inlet. then I would go back through the needle adjustments, then start it. If it still blows black smoke and runs rough, I would think it time to open the carb and see what is going on to cause it. Just my 2⍧
