Question about 1984 Yamaha FJ 1100
I picked up an 1100 maxim inline 4 that had bad coils. replaced the coils and got it to start. But when it started, it has reved up to full throttle and I have to kill it to stop it. Cable, levers and choke all operating like normal.
Tried it again today and it would run for just a second then die. After a few tries, the exhaust started on fire. There's fuel in the exhaust pipes and dripping out of the intake box at the air cleaner.
These carbs were supposedly rebuilt by a local shop but he never had it running again because the coils were bad.
Looks like I'll have to pull the carbs off and take them apart. Just wondering if anyone knows what I should be looking for? Float, needles? Just need some direction as to what might be wrong.
Thanks so much,
