Default G-16 fuel problem

I am losing fuel flow through the filter, and to the engine. When the engine first fires up, I can see good flow through the filter, but then it slows down to almost nothing. Without a much load on the engine it will usually run so so, but go up a hill, or put a load on, and it stalls out.

I checked, and also replaced fuel lines. Cleaned the fuel pump, and then replaced, filter is good. I am getting air flow from the breather to the pump.

I am an wondering if I may need to make adjustments to the carb? I did ad the Zemco exhaust header, and replaced the stock filter with an aftermarket K&N type.

I am an ignorant when it comes to troubleshooting carbs.

That I did not.... I do recall reading about that previously, and forgot about it.

Thanks much, I'll give it a shot.

Rejet and you will be fine! I had the same issue. It would run if you choked it but its just not getting enough fuel with all the new air.

I bought the largest one possible, I THINK.04. Here is where I got mine and it works perfectly....

Call them and ask them for the biggest. Tell them what you have done to the cart and they will work with you. The one in the attached link is the smaller of the two and the larger one is there if you call.

Good Luck....

You can also drill your main jet... you can purchase a very small set of bits and start small and get a bit larger and larger until the cart runs well..

Dog--Do you have the Zemco header, or something else? I would like to put a header on mine sometime--just not sure which one. Something that isn't too loud.

Diesel--How do you like the Zemco? Is it very loud? Did you use the CCP jet from the link?

Thanks---

I do have the Zemco header, and really like it. I picked it up from Jake's. The one they sell has a ceramic coating vs. chrome. I called and asked about that, and the reason they changed was the Chrome finish was discoloring quickly. With my G-16, the muffler laid up against my brake line. I found and purchased a Hi-temp ceramic sleeve rated at 500 deg F continuious, and 1200deg intermittant.

I did use the jet from the link. As it was after hours, and I needed it in a hurry, I ordered the one on the link. It is working perfectly.

BTW, sorry for the late response, I have been battling internet problems.
