Question about Peg Perego Vespa Scooter
Hi, I have a Vespa 1967 fully restored but just av a problem with the engine cutting out after around 40secs. It runs perfectly when starting. To get the engine running again I have to take the plug out, turn the fuel off and crank it over a few times, then put the plug back in and then again turn the fuel back on and its starts more or less first kick. Anyone know what this could be?? Thanks. What does it mean if you have fuel in the bottom of the carb as in where the air mix screw is, the fuel isn't coming out of the float as I checked it.. I think it comes out of the air filter when I leave the fuel on all the time and try kicking it over....also is it a good idea to turn off your fuel supply when not using the bike?
On old carbs they have mechanical fule pump. you may need to look into a new one or try pumping the gas a few times while turning it over.
and it means theres fule in the bottem of the carb.... the carb is an atomization chamber for fule. if you have to much fule (ie to rich) your going to have liquid fule at the bottem of the carb. this is bad, you need to lean out the carb bar turning the idle screws the right (12 o-clock to 9 o-clock...) just a bit at a time. and play with it while it's at idle to what you think is a good idea. you can hear it trust me just play around with it.
also look at the throttle advansment lever (it shoot gas in at wide open throttle as to not stall) its conected to your throttle cable.
AND YES IT IS.... your fule will evaporate and fast if don't.
