    been a while still an issue with my XP

    well, after a long hiatus (lots of shit going on) i want to finally finish it. its actually kinda finished already. i am having a problem though.

    once i get it to start it runs great. shut it off, try to start again and it just wont start. spark is good, when i pull the plugs they are pretty wet though. im hoping it isnt the carbs since they have maybe 2 hours since i rebuilt them. but im betting it is. this is a new motor but nothing has changed from before. same carbs and elec. i did not have the rotary cover off though. could it be the rotary valve skipped a tooth? i have not had it in the water yet so i dont know what it runs like under load. this is all in my garage. figure its useless to water test it till it actually starts when i want it to.

    maybe you will get lucky and the new gas will flush the crud free,, was it put away with sta-bil, or anything?? you might be best off to open the carbs and make sure they are not full of trash, hate to see you ruin a motor that could be prevented...

    How long has it been sitting up ? Maybe you should see if the stale gas has caused the internals of your carb to become full of sticky crud.

    its been sitting for a year. been started intermitantly for the past 3-4 months. no i didnt use stable. i guess it wouldnt hurt to pull them apart right quick. drain the fuel tank and clean it out. luckily there is only a couple gallons in it. thanks guys.

    Yes, I agree. With it running, then heated up, not running and showing signs of fuel on the plugs, you either have needle valve seats leaking by or your lever is bent to far upward. If you end up taking the carbs down again, check to make sure the lever is flush to the plate or no more than 1mm above flush..........

    Does the gas smell old? I'd siphon out all of it and pour it into your car, and refill with new.
