Hi all.Friend of mine has problems with his engine so engines got to come out so I can see what's going on with the heads,think they may be cracked.Thing is it's got way to much end float.So can I get away with just reshimming or have I got to rebuild the bottom end to cure the end float problem.No nasty knocks or rattles from the bottom end.

Beach Buggy Engine and Exhaust Help / Carb probs
« on: July 29, 2019, 06:45:22 PM »
Hi all,running twin 34 ict carbs on my 1600tp.F6 emulsion tubes,135 mains,55 idles.was running fine but the left hand side carb has started running  to rich.It pops and bangs on that side ( running cannons).if I wind out the mixture screw more than half a turn it chucks out loads of black smoke and runs really rough.Mixture screw on the other carb is screwed out nearly one and a half turns.Any thoughts on this greatly received.Have stripped carb down and cleaned out but still the same.Even with the mix screw only half way out it doesn't run as it did.
Ps.carbs are only a few months old
