    So latley in the mini, when i stab the gas the engine will fall on its face, unless the RPM's are above 2k, evan when it is warm.

    I've been fighting the same problem for a month. The floats in the carb were set too low and the accel. pump reservoir wasn't getting any gas. No gas, no squirt, no service. Pissed me off when I found out what it was, because I replaced all sorts of stuff before I checked that. :mad:
