Good morning. Thanks for your insights again. No, I didn’t get a pic. If I remember correctly, I had to lift the tail end of the lever some to get it where it is now in the picture. Would that mean the needle is not seating properly? I don’t think it was a ton of bending.The metering lever looks correct. Did you take some pics before hand?
someone else’s, they just happened to be testing a saw when I was there.Did the smoke pour out of your crank seals, or someone elses?
Yeah, I don’t have that. I saw them using it at the dealer, so I know what it looks like. My plan was to put some inner-tube rubber under muffler and carb to seal ports. Then attach mitivac to impulse line and vac or pressurize, and clamp off line with small vice grips or locking needle-nose. I have a new impulse line on there now.If you dont have a Mitivac, I doubt you have the OEM tool that allows you to Easily vac test with the tank and boot attached. It bolts in where the carb goes.
Ok, what’s the best way to plug this?Dont forget youll need to plug Your decomp valve to get an accurate test, but you’ll probably be ok leaving it in.
Yeah Alden is east of Buffalo, probably 75 miles or so from here.I’m down on Long Island. Dave @fruecrue is in Alden, which I think is close to you.
again, thanks for taking the time to help me. I have to wait for my new vent from eBay, so I might have the mitivac before I’m able to get everything back together.
