I bought this sled used at what I felt was a good deal. I knew it needed some work and I thought it would be fun learning how to fix it. On my own, I was only able to get the sled started once. I had to hold down the throttle and when I released it the motor died.
The seller said the compression was 130 in both cylinders and it probably needed a good carb cleaning. Sounded doable at my skill level. I replaced the main and pilot jets and cleaned out the carbs. When I put her back together she wont start. I also purchased a compression tested and when I test it there is 55 psi in each cylinder. And I could be doing it wrong. I tested it on my van too and it was also low. Got it on Ebay. Might be crap. idk. I can try to borrow one from a neighbor when I see him.
It could also be possible I put things together wrong.
I am no sure what the compression is until I get another tester.
I do get a spark from the spark plug cables.
I cannot not see or smell gas on the spark plugs or the whole the spark plug screws into.
Gas is flowing into the carb. I am not sure how to test if there is gas in the bowls. I did not see drain plugs like on motorcycle carbs.
You got offered help from Smurfy71 over PM. The way I am seeing it, the best bet would be to try to get Smurfy71's help over the phone. You would be far better off with a real live conversation.
