Where you buying all those parts?
I could never make the Tillotson HL314G tune in, I could getit close, but never right. I picked up an F200 spec Tillotson carb, and it was slightly better at times, but its a top end carb, it made the engine a pig until about 4000 rpms, then it launched like a rocket...throttle response was weak.
I had it sustained as high as 8200 rpms, for about 45 seconds, long enough to make 1/2 the pipe cherry red, and the inside of the silencer "hold a flame"....motor just gets stronger and stronger.
My plans are to take a step back, and move away from the race type tillotson carbs, and try a 24mm Mikuni slide carb, such as found on dirt bikes.. These are a better all-round carb.
But Im so busy lately, between restoring my old vette, and keeping my old jeep running...Just havent had time to mess with the Karts lately. In fact, I know right now Ive got to drain old gas out of the Invader's gas tank, put on new lines, and clean the carb, before it will even run...its been nearly 1 year since Ive run it.
The Emmick, and its Honda, the carb probably isnt even "workable" at this point, its been sitting so long.
