I've desmogged my '80 to good effect. I replaced the elbow with a plug, but simply smeared the tap with grease before cutting in the threads. This was sufficient to keep all shavings out of the manif

Are you sure you disconnected the lockout switch and not the reverse light switch? On many transmissions, they're on opposite sides of the transmission at about the same location. Cheers, Lew Palmer

Definitely one of the ways a bad coil can act. If you have electronic ignition, also could be a bad amp or incorrectly set air gap in the pickup. If it has points, check that the points are OK and th

Just on the odd chance that the switch is still the culprit, try checking the resistance between each of the two switch contacts and ground (battery disconnected). If there was an internal short in t

Could have been debris in the needle and seat, a sticky float, or simply a bad needle or seat. Also, check the overflow tube on the carb that leaks. If the overflow tube is blocked, the float bowl ha

Do as Pete suggests and try centering the jet. But before you go to that trouble, be sure you haven't reversed the dashpots between the two carbs. These are usually hand selected at the factory for

Not enough electrical power to BOTH turn the starter AND provide ignition power is not uncommon. Check the battery voltage when cranking the engine on the starter. I'll bet it will be in the neighbor

Check the check valve that's just ahead of the air rail. These things have a habit of falling apart and leaking air. That much air in the exhaust ports will definitely cause backfiring. (Ask me how I

I don't know where you are located, but you should be able to find the screws in any well stocked hardware store. That is certainly true here in North America. A 10-32 screw will work, but I believe
