Default get it to run.

Hey guys I've been working on the stock 230 tring to make it run, I've set the dwell, gapped the plugs, dielectric the connections, cleaned flue lines and filters. Starts on the first hit, sputters for a couple minutes and dies, cant give and throttle during sputtering. Also noticed gas leaking from the bottom butterfly housing... possible problem??
Thanks

Sounds like your carb needs a good cleaning and the float is sticking open.

Agree, a carb clean/rebuild, cheap and simple.

Thanks, that's where I was headed too. Took it off last night and the throat and choak flap looked like the inside of a chimney, found one soggy and half split gasket under the valve body. Was wondering, when I got this it had a fuel pump with 30 psi@80 gallon flow there was a regulator but who knows. Question though is could the fuel pressure have damaged the carb?

I am no expert but I think that 30 PSI is way too high for this carburetor. Isn't it usually less than 10 PSI?

I just checked the online manual (Link at the top of this page, TM 9-2320-244-34 Direct Support and General Support Maintenance Manual) and here is what it says: "Pressure should be 3-1/2 to 5-1/2 psi at 600 rpm"

30 psi is almost getting to fuel injection levels. Probably 3 times too high. Can you turn that fuel pump off? I've seen a lot of four wheelers that used both the stock fuel pump and an auxiliary pump to help out on really steep inclines. Quite a few of my friends with old CJs would run them but I don't think any of them were close to that kind of pressure.

Fuel pressure should be 4-6 psi. Any more than that will flood the carb. You could regulate it down.

If you still have the stock fuel pump it can be rebuilt. http://www.then-now-auto.com

Anything over 7 psi is too high for any carb. They used to make fuel pressure regulators you could put on between the carb and fuel pump if you had an electric fuel pump that had too high of pressure.

Correct....7 psi is the max carbs take before you start blowing the needle off the seat.
