Re: Carb Rebuild/Cleaning (200)

That is your fuel filter.
It is feeding into the needle valve, which should be a replacement part in your kit.
You will be replacing that fuel filter anyways, buy a new one.
Is it broken and rotating on itself?
You can use a big pair of pliers to get a grip on that rim on the housing.

Re: dying when hot

Have you made any adjustments to the new carb?
It would need to be set up.
And perhaps the the timing needs to be adjusted too.

Have you got a tach , timing light and a vacuum guage?

You need a timing light with an advance dial to check anything over idle.
And if all you're doing is driving around the block it won't charge the battery.
