It is almost like it gets enough gas to start then can get enough and conks out. I checked the vents in the gas cap, and even tried it with the cap off and its a no go. Any ideas guys?
On a good note, it doesn't surge for those 5 seconds
The only thing i can think of is to blow it up
Or, adjust the new carb.
