1973 dodge dump truck rebuilt the carborator and it still keeps cutting off when at idle. Any sugestions?


CHECK FLOAT LEVEL IS CORRECT. IF YES CHANGE OUT FUEL FILTER AND FUEL PUMP. OLD DUMP TRUCKS GET A LOT OF RUST IN FUEL TANK. YOU MAY NEED TO COAT THE INSIDE OF TANK. THERE ARE COATING KITS AVAILABLE.

I recently purchased a 2002 lowrider with only319 miles on it obviously it has sat awhile. It has a hard time idling on initial warm up and when warmed up giving it a little throttle (not under load) it...


The bike may suffer from a combo of the gas going stale in the carb, and may have slightly clogged the small passageways, but if it starts and runs you are halfway there. Use some carb or fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank to help out there. As far as cold start, it may be from a lean condition form the factory, and the coughing and popping are symptomatic of that. If you have a good HD shop nearby, they should be able to change the slow speed up just a bit, to pretty much take care of the issue of coughing, popping and cold start issues. My bike was the same, I bumped the low speed jet up , but still have a cold blooded bike, it takes a while to run properly form cold start, and will pop if driven too soon or if it is cold out until she warms up good. Some advice for cold start, use the choke know as usual, then push in the choke as soon as you can, and use the throttle to keep RPMs up about 1000 using throttle lock to RPMs there. As the motor warms up RPMs will increase on their own and you can adjust the RPMs lower as motor warms using throttle and throttle lock. Use your hand to touch the heads, as the motor warms up you'll feel heat, when she's too hot too touch, she is ready to ride. See you in the wind.

Carburator needs ajusting with stage 1


Unless the "anti-tamper plug" has been removed that covers the idle mixture screw, you cannot adjust the carb. If the plug has been removed, you adjust the carb exactly like you would any other carb, for the highest, smoothest idle speed. Once this is obtained, adjust the idle stop screw to obtain the correct idle speed of 1000-1100 RPM.

Dies at idle


  1. Carb jets may still be dirty or improperly sized.
  2. The Cam and/or Cam journals are worn down and allowing some play in the timing.(Very common on the XR's)
Sounds more like carb or timing issues to me

The stator could be going,but it doesn't sound like this is your issue.


Please rate this a fixya
