I picked up a project moped a couple weeks ago. Someone had a 1979 Honda pa50 that they started years ago and lost interest. It was in boxes. I have it all together and am running into issues getting it to start so I can try to start tuning in.
It’s a 1979 Honda pa50 with a lot of new mods all at once. I know, not the best idea but that’s how it came. Since it was torn down years ago it has a dr 70cc kit. A trick 6 variator and a delloroto phbg 20mm carb. Along with a lot of new seals cables etc. so I have it together and am getting good spark. I’m really just trying to figure out a rough initial setting on carb ( idle and mixture) to get it to start. At first idle screw was backed out all the way and I could only get a few pops of it trying to fire with some throttle. I have it in most of the way and still get some trying but not much. I have fuel on the spark plug now so maybe getting too much. Not sure? Anyway it’s 90 deg and humid the last few days so I’ve lost a lot of sweat pedaling this beast. Let me know if anyone has any recommendations.
I have the stock carb if anyone thinks it’s worth it to put it back in for a shot.
