So after one hell of a year mixed with trying to sell my P200e, to going full bore on a old flame that is Vintage VW's. The P200e is back up on stage with a renewed motivation.
After the engine rebuild last year I had it running ok but with a very high idle and cable adjustments frustrations that kicked my rear. Now, back at it with a much helpful 4th hand tool I have gotten the cables at least headed in the right direction. But now I am back to square one on the running issues. It really will not even start unless leaned over to the battery side and when it does any amount of throttle it dies.
I put a new plug cap and spark plug wire on it. Pulled off the 24/24 carb and completely cleaned again. While cleaning found my jets where very odd. Searching shows for a stock '81 P200e with autolube I should be using a:
Well what was in the carb was very odd.. it had:
95 <---- ?????
What I had on hand and what is currently installed is :
My idle screw was at 2.5 turns but actually started and ran for 10 seconds out around 3 or 3.5. The mixer screw was out 1.5 turns.
I am getting good spark and my timing is set to "A" or 23 BTDC.
Looking forward to your take and/or slap up side the head and as always the amazing help here is always appreciated!
