?HOW DO I SET THE CARBURATOR RODS IN PROPER ORDER SO I CAN START IT PLEASE?

Engine hard to start after sitting


Sounds like it could be a carburator issue. Fuel could be leaking out of the fuel bowl or back to the fuel tank. You can tell this if you have the breather off and *before trying to start the engine* operate the accelerator arm on the carburator as you look down into the carburator. If the fuel hasn't leaked back you should see it shoot some fuel into the carburator. Also could be a fuel pump problem where the pump lets the fuel leak back and there isn't fuel there to pump up to start the engine when it's cold. Also the 360 wasn't released until 1971 so it's pretty safe to say it's not a 1967 or not a 360.

check that the auto choke is properly adjusted as it indicates that the engine needs a rich mixture to start when cold.

I have a hard start problem with a carburated 1988 toyota corolla fx, 1.6 SOHC. When it's cold, it starts right up without me even depressing the accelerator. But once it reaches operating temper


If this is the model with the variable venturi, it has a little green vacum box claped under the air filter box, theyplay up a lot, results in bad starting, bad idle, or stalling.

Hope this helps

The previous owner had the carbs jetted I don't know what size he added or whatever. But everything else is stock. The problem I'm having is the bike runs really bad and the fumes are bad when idling but...


Hi there,

The jets are for increased performance but the jets installed must be in relation to the pipe used. An open pipe would require larger jets. If the jets came with the pipe when the previous owner purchased it, then it should work. My advise would be to tune it up, sync the carbs, and time the sparks.

If all else fail, ask the previous owner to provide the stock jets and replace it. Stock jets along with the stock pipe will almost always run the first time. Sync the carbs and tune timing. If you have it all running smooth, from there you can do upgrades like stage 1 jet kit or purchase a performance exhaust.

Please do let me know if any of this was helpful,
I'll follow it up should my suggestions fail,

Engine turns over but after a few goes if it


First, I'd check the battery. Just because it's new doesn't necessarily mean anything. I've seen them bad right out of the box. Make sure you've at least 250 cold cranking amps in the battery.

Next, find out why the bike doesn't start on the first try. You said "after a few goes". You're using a might small battery to start a large engine. It can't turn in over forever. If you have a carburated engine, turn on fuel petcock, pull out the enricher, milk the throttle twice, turn on the ignition switch, press the starter button. Do Not open the throttle at all. If you do, you disable the enricher circuit. If this doesn't work, check to make sure your accellerator pump is working correctly.

If your bike is fuel injected, a trip to the deal is warranted. No user adjustable parts there.

Is the bike stock? If you bought the bike used, there's not telling what a previous owner may have done to it in the line of high performance work. You may want to run a compression test on the engine to determine if that cams or anything else has be replaced. If so, buy the biggest baddest battery you can squeeze into the bike. Harley's AGM battery is a good battery for a stock or relatively mildly modified bike.
