all fixed, runs strong, on to changin the dry rot tires
OK, got the new 1987 running, but it runs like crap.
Start and Idle like normal. but under acceleration or wot it coughs, sputters, chugs, pops.
Did a basic lazy man carb and put in a new needle float valve and seat.
That stopped the fuel running out the overflow.
It has a stock 114 jet. Set the idle needle to 2.5 turn.
Could it be the cdi?
What did you do? I'm glad to read that its fixed.
If you can't find it, grind it
I have an 87 as well, and had the same problem. I just needed to use a lower octane fuel, and it ran great
