CS 100 Idling Issue

Recommended Posts

As above. When it's been stood for a week or so on starting at low revs it hunts and surges, and is a bit smokey. This goes away once it warms up. Only got 30-40 hours under it's belt.

 

Any ideas?

 

Was going to ask the Greenmech guys about it at the APF.

 

Cheers.

Had to make a choke return spring on ours as it'd otherwise choke when it was hot. Almost sounds like the reverse of your problem. Theres plenty on here got one so someone will be able to help.

Could be air entering the fuel system. I would do a filter change, clean any gauze strainers and check the tank pickup if possible. Run a spanner over all pipe connections in case one is loose.

Had a similar problem on a customers lorry once. Turned out to be a

cracked olive.

Sorry thought it was diesel. Disregard

I'm sure mine's done this too.

 

Only thing I've noticed is that the choke mechanism gets a bit detached and is free to move in and out too freely. Pretty sure I've had to re-attach is a couple of times now.

 

Vibration could move it in or out...

 

Anyone had trouble with the cut-out switch under the drive belt cover?
