Diablos Carb issue

Post by bubbiewubbie » Wed Nov 28, 2018 7:56 pm

I have a question about the Diablo...

I have an issue with my Diablo, It will run if you have a squrt bottle, otherwise it will only run until the carb empties. I have tried to gravity feed fuel to the carb it will not run. Any thoughts???

check for a stuck needle. It is not getting gas. The spray bottle shows that you have spark.

My old Hus ski is correct. You have a stuck needle. My diablo always had a stuck needle the first time it was started in the winter. A good trick related by Bruce in the past is to remove the gas line from the carb and carefully blow some air to unstuck the needle. I used a bicycle hand pump fitted with a short gas line that I attached to the carb and gently hand pump air in the carb until you hear the needle release. Usually, once it was unstuck, it would not reoccur for the season.
Bear in mind that if it happens every start, you should clean your carb or better yet put in a new kit.
Hope this helps,
