Hi, I'm having several related or unrelated problems with my 1983 Indy Trail 440.
1. From a cold start I'm not able to start the sled up at all anymore without pulling the plugs and adding fuel to the cylinder, Once it is "warm" i'm able to start it no problem.
2. After I've run the sled on the trail for awhile, 20-30 minutes... one side of the engine seems to stall, sputter and spurt, and shortly there after both sides stall. I'm stuck however far I made it. Once i let it set and cool for about half an hr, i can restart and go for awhile again. (trying to get back to the truck)
I originally thought it was the CDI, because when the engine stalls in the field it doesn't seem to have any spark. But after reading here on the forums, it sounds like that could just be caused by the flooding AFTER it stalls. I carry multiple sets of plugs and swap them out all the time, doesn't seem to make a lot of difference. The symptoms sound really similar to what other people have posted about. Can you confirm that the probable cause is the carbs and need to completely clean/rebuild both carbs? (the right one seems to be worse then left).
Also if anyone has any manuals or reference material that would be awesome too, since it is so old i'm having trouble tracking down any info.
