    Beerdart's 2003 MSX 140

    Scored me a 140. while I was cruising crags list for a 1200 cylinder this 2003 MSX 140 popped up add said fuel dumping into hull $750. Sent my CLB to make the deal we offered $500 the dude said that's to low and he has several people interested and we said that is our offer call text if the deals fall through. A week later we get a txt says he is tired of the C list BS and its mine for $500 so made the deal drive to LI for pick-up and tonight i take a look at it and the fuel pressure gauge fitting blew out so I replaced the line after breaking the plastic nipple off the sender fixed the nipple and also the regulator fitting as it fell off when I removed the sender. New lines run to the injectors and the old girl fired right up. Hope to water test this weekend. Woot?

    Nice find.

    Check the exhaust temp sender for wire damage right near the sensor. Makes the engine run funky if the wire is damaged.

    Ficht

    When really cold a Ficht engine can hesitate slightly from idle. Less so than most carb engines I have had the pleasure of riding when cold started.

    If it is still hesitant when warm and running in the water you may need to replace the TPS sensor. A good TPS is a must have.
