I hope everyone had a great July 4th and I know the weekend is still going on. Now that I turned 55 yesterday, I'm in the "I just wanna take my time" mode.
But, the lawn and garden doesn't see my point of view and is screaming attention.
So, I'm back to trying to get my 850 running. I removed the car alternator the PO had installed, located a voltage regulator, starter solenoid, points and condenser, spark plug and a battery. All new and all is wired in and working well. Have spark at least 3/8" and the motor turns good. Have gas flow at the tank to the carb. Pulled all external adjusting screws and cleaned internals with carb cleaner. Did this after I dribbled gas in the spark plug opening and got it to fire for a moment. Dribbled gas down the carb throat and it fired again, then died.
Okay, so I seem to need to rebuild the carb. Money and time are not being kind right now and I have a rebuilt carb sitting here from a TRA-10D motor. The S-8D takes a different one from what I see.
Is it possible that I can temporarily use the carb meant for the TRA-10D until I rebuild the other carb for the S-8D??
