  • BF40 idle and shaking

    When I'm at low idle, my engine shakes and often stalls. It feels like only 2 cylinders are firing, but the plugs checked out clean. When I increase the throttle, it tunes up and runs great at a higher RPM. Is there a low end idle adjustment that can simply fix this? Other suggestions?

    May need to have carb linkage synchronized, will need set of carb sync gauges or sync meter.

      Sounds something like my problem? I start it up with the choke on. The minuet I take it off high choke and bring it down it starts to shake and stalls out. Can't keep it running long enough to get it into gear. It runs great at high RPMS.
