Helix Dies

Postby sbrowerslc » Fri Sep 13, 2019 2:31 pm

I have a 1985 cn250 Helix.
Hasn't run for a while... so I bought a new carburetor for it and installed it.
Machine starts and idles just fine. When I go out on a test drive everything
runs great. Then it quits like it is out of gas. Cannot Start. After sitting for
several minutes it starts and run perfect. Then repeats above.

Checked fuel and it is present.
Any ideas where/what I can look for ?

Sounds like it is running to lean or to rich, how does spark plug look?

Spark plug Looks good.
When it runs it run smooth and no backfires. Sounds like it is getting correct amount of gas.
It will idle for like 10-15 minutes no problem. Then I take it out and within the first mile it quits
and have to wait a while before it will turn over and run.
Almost like the fuel bowl is filling up and you drive it and the fuel is used up then after waiting a while
the fuel bowl gets refilled and it starts just fine.

It certainly sounds like a fuel problem. I would replace the fuel filter and fuel lines, no saying this would fix it but can not hurt.
