60 sport won't stay running
« on: July 06, 2016, 11:20:58 PM »
Need some help guys. My 1964 Bridgestone 60 Sport won't stay running. I put the choke on one kick firs right up and after 3 maybe 4 seconds stalls right out. Compression 110 lbs and has new crank seals . Carb recently ultrasound cleaned.

Vent hole open on cap.

Idle mixture screw set at 1 3/4 turns out. Maybe I should open the mixture screw more?

Any help would be appreciated. Trying to get her going for Mid Ohio

Since no one else has made any guesses, here's mine.
That's something I've not seen before, so - wild guess - float level too low, fuel level drops below idle jet almost immediately?
Does it do it repeatedly, or once it dies, won't restart at all?  If it won't restart a second or third time, check for spark after it dies, maybe a coil issue.
