Well the Bayou started running like crap today. Backfiring and stuttering at anything above an idle. Cleaned the carb really good and no change. Plug is bright white, which I know means lean, but opening the choke doesn't make it any better.
Gonna check float height and check the fuel flow from the tank tomorrow. They both seemed good today but I'll check again.
I also pulled the cam cover, the timing marks are still lined up, but I've heard to partially shearing the crank key causing issues too and I need to pull that side of the engine off to diagnose an issue with the starter anyways.
Any suggestions on other things to check would be great. It starts easy and idles fine. Just started popping and carrying on out of the blue today.
We tinkered with the Bayou some yesterday. Blondie asked if any parts were coming for it and I told here there were some at the post office. She perked right up and after I got the brakes finished on the Xterra, the test drive was us going to get her 4wheeler parts.
She installed the new ignition coil and then we pushed it outside so she could brush and paint the rusty spots on the frame. The first coat was just about dry and a rain storm forced us to clean it up for the evening.
A bunch more parts should be here Monday, so hopefully we can make some more progress next week.
