Re: idle problems

to much fuel getting through and its flooding it. or not enough spark try new leads and sparks some times when the coil to dizzy lead is f**cked it earths out and causes it to ark and wont fire the fuel as well u can tell by holding a screwdriver near the lead on the coil or dizzy. make sure it has a good handle that wont let u cop a zap if u see the spark ark to the screw driver then its that or check dizzy cap for cracks that will do the same thing. but i would say leads or cap on this one maybe a fuel problem but i say its flodding from to much unburnt fuel due to lack of spark
