hi everybody!


1974 360.
I’m trying to make this thing a daily driver.

Cam chain tension adjusted to spec
points gapped to spec
Valves adjusted to spec
New intake boots
Stock filters and boxes
Carbs clean as a whistle, rebuilt with fresh brass
Tank freshly lined, por15.
new plugs
New coils
New wires
New petcock
New(clear)fuel lin

new fuel cap

From cold, it starts runs and idles like a champ. Some spitting and popping revving to 9k but not much.

3 miles later, if I come to a stop it stalls and doesn’t want to start again. 20 minutes later it’s back to normal.

The clear lines let me see that they have trouble staying full, so it seems like a fuel delivery problem, but open the petcock with the lines off and it pours gasoline like a waterfall. It’s almost like there’s a vacuum created in the lines and I have to loosen them to bleed the air out of them, then they fill back up.

filling them up when it’s stalled does not allow it to restart, however.

Any tips? I’m tired of riding my aero 80 scooter, I look like a Mary.

Your gas cap vent may be stopped up. Next time it happens, pop the cap open and see if it starts right up after a few seconds.

Tried it, thanks. cap open or closed, no help.

maybe my floats are set too low and I'm stopping flow too soon. hm.

When it stalls, have you checked to see if it still has spark at the plugs?
