Hi have poor idle after 2 years of storage and stiff throttles, am removing carbs for clean, where are slow run jets

The stiff throttle is probably the grease dried in the cables.
Try this, take the throttle and brake assembly apart on the bars, get a tennis ball cut it in two. Pierce one in the centre and push it onto the throttle cable end. Fill will a tablespoon of oil and leave overnight with a rag around the other end of the outer cable where the inner cable exits. This will lube the cables.

The rough running is probably a result of dirt somewhere, either the carburettors, or the ignition system or it might even be muck in the fuel line coming form a rusted fuel tank. Check the fuel filter for dirt and replace if required. Check the points if its not electronic-ignition and clean with some paper between them.

The idle jet adjustment will be on the carb but it depends what carb as to exactly where it will be fitted. Take a look at this video on youtube. It's about a two stroke engine but where the carb is involved the mechanics will be the same or similar. If it's multi cylinder/multi carb then you will need to balance the jets to make it idle properly.

What do I need to do after 10 years of storage.To put a 1992 Sea Doo in water?

Change fluids, Check hull for bouyancy flaws, replace plugs, clean carbs or rebuild them. Most old engines get gummed up after long term storage if the fuel was not completely drained. Another possibility is that the bearings may be damaged from years of condensation and and drying. It happens sometimes and sometimes you just get lucky. Had a ducati paso 750 that blew the race on the bearings because they were deteriorated after years of storage in climate controlled space. Was fine then one day the bearings came apart in the engine and chewed it up.

I can get the engine started with the aid of the choke but cannot get the engine to rev at all. the engine just stops at anything near 2000 rpm. have had both carb stripped down and cleaned as the bike has...

Hi Roy ,

Your bike has been sitting in storage and the fuel is too old ad is stale by now .
Re open the carby , clean it properly with new fuel , all the jets need to be inspected for dirt or residue left by the old fuel , drain all the fuel out of the tank and replace it by new fuel .
The old fuel leaves a deposit film which needs to be clean so the best way is to pour a little fuel into your tank , shake the tank to clean it and drain it again .
Make sure that all gasket in the carby are clean or new as extra air intake will make the bike run rough .
Try all this and you will see that the bike will run better .

change the battery. It takes alot more power to turn an engine over than to hond a horn. Your carburetor and gas tank likely need to be cleaned out also if they were not drained before storage

I purchased a poulan pro self propelld lawn mower in May. I went to use it yesterday, it started and ran fine for about 5 minutes. It stalled, so I restarted it and it dies in a few seconds, and now will...

Common condition for this time of year and also 1st mowing in the spring. Debris from the gasoline supply and tank has settled in the bowl or jets of the carburetor.

Float Bowl Carburetor; cleaning main jet
1) remove the float bowl retaining bolt
*this is the main jet ... very small hole in the center of the bolt allows fuel to enter the inside of the carburetor

2) blow air or spray carb cleaner thru the hole in the center of the bolt

3) additionaly you may want to use a small wire (called 'tag' wire) to clean the center hole

4) remove the bowl to drain fuel/debris

5) you may need to replace the gaskets/o-ring for the bowl nut and bowl to carburetor body

*NOTE: for the future and winter storage, a product called StaBil can be used in the fuel storage can all the time, it will help condition the fuel.
