I posted before about my Bayou not starting and such. So far i have rebuilt the carb and blown it all out thoroughly. I have a Dynojet kit installed also. I got it to run but had erratic idle.. i thought this was the intake elbow gaskets so i replaced those. After much much effort i got it to start and drive the other day. It ran great once it fired off of starting fluid eventually. I shut it off thinking it was just having to get air etc.. out of the carb. Now it wont start at all even with ether/gas. Full throttle/choke/no throttle nothing. It has nice blue spark. Here are the parts i have replaced in the carb area:
Throttle cable cap fitting O-ring, bowl gasket, Choke plunger and Oring, intake fitting gasket and Oring, exhaust collar gaskets. I have the pilot jet set according to my Clymer manual.
My only uncertain thing is that the slide on the carb got a little burred one time trying to install it. In order to make it slide into the carb bore smoothly i had to lightly sand it. Would this be enough to cause an air leak and make it idle erraticly? What about not start at all?
The part im hung up on is that it cant be a timing issue because on the off chance that i do get it running it usually runs ok with no backfire/hesitation. I just cant get it to start even with ether most of the time.
Any thoughts about what to look for in the carb?? I guess this must be where the problem lies?
