    1200 Genesis Running Bad!

    Hello,

    I have finally got most of my carb'd Genesis back together after waiting for new gaskets etc.. I have removed the pop off and thermostat and today started it up to flush it and see how it ran whilst connected to water etc

    It was idling really quickly (see video) approx 3K RPM an when I tried to "blip" the throttle it almost seemed to bog down a bit like it was gonna die, then the revs peaked really high to like 7K RPM and I struggled to turn it off (I had turned the water off then?

    I tried to adjust the idle screw but bit seemed like it wouldn't budge? Anyone have any ideas that could point me in the right direction? Had the carbs rebuilt with new gaskets recently, had new plugs too?

    Any help/advice greatly appreciated!!




    Thanks!

    With out any load on the engine (not in the water)- it will idle high. 2600 rpm is usual.

    If the accel pump was not primed. it will bog.
    I'd say next step is to back it into the water,strapped to the trailer, let it run/check for leaks/check idle-like 1200 iirc.

    The large plastic nut at the front of front carb adjusts idle speed. The do corrode into the aluminum housing-try to wiggle it free.

    It usually fills with some run time.

    Did you make that adapter for the water hose connection or did you buy it?
