View Full Version : tr1100 problem

11-11-2008, 01:16 PM
i have a older tr1100 that ran fine untill yesterday and kept shutting off after a couple minutes then was hard to start and now wont start at all.
I replaced the plug, hoses.filter and still no luck. I did check and fuel is flowing pretty good and it is getting good spark when its cranking.
Even adding a bit of fuel to the carb does nothing, but did help yesterday.
i did test the kill switch and grounded it to the truck like i always did and only lost spark when i took it off the carb linkage.

Any thoughts?

I'm not an engine guy but it sounds fuel related. I'd review the fuel system and check the tank itself. It sounds like a clog of some form. It it runs for a period then dies it sounds like it's using up the available fuel then starving.

If you're not able to find anything I'd go to a dealer where a mechanic can trouble shoot it and get you back to making money.

Bad gas can do this too.
