I started "Fixing Up" my scoot about three years ago then injury stopped play.
The up shot is over the last few weeks the fuel tank that has been sitting on the dinning room table for the last two years finally went back into the scoot.
Added oil, and petrol and a heathy glug of oil into the petrol (had an air bubble in the autolube pipe to check it was working)
I put a squirt of two stroke into the cylinder to give it a bit of lube after its long sleep.
hit the starter switch the engine turned but nada.
I put a bit of fuel into the cylinder via the spark plug …..life! OK, no go juice getting to the engine.
I re built the carb and filling new gaskets.
sucked some fuel with a syringe through the pipe reattached to carb.
It took a good few turns but she fired into life.
Now the first of a I'm sure many more problems.
I know the auto lube is working should I syphon the pre mix from the tank as opposed to just burning it off? The reason I'm saying this the neighbours came to warn me my shed was on fire!
5 min of running smoke bellowing from the windows, roof and door.
If I road it like this I would look like a vespa version of the red arrows!
