Carb setup

Recommended Posts

I have just put my S2 back together after an engine fire some 17 years ago. I have rebuilt the Carbs but it will now only run on choke. I have set the mixture screws 2 turns out as the manual states but still need the choke all the time. Any ideas what I have wrong.
I have also conducted compression test and ignition timing which are both fine

Sounds like it's running weak. Keep turning those screws out!

Phil, I support Gary's comment. Think you are running it too lean. For the S3 and Turbos the recommendation is 3 turns out aka 6 to 6 1/2 half turns. Get a carbtune at least to balance them after you have stable idle.
