His has the early push button box, and yes they do go bad. The later leopards had the key start system with the separate A electronic control box, they go bad as well, the wiring is extremely light and vibration takes it toll on them.
I actually did not have the throttle open, how big of a difference will that makeGood luck! Hope we helped a little. I would check the compression again, make sure the throttle is wide open when you test it so it gets in enough air. If you truly only have 120lbs , you need a to pull the head and check the ring /piston and cylinder wall as that is just too low.
ill be looking at everything tomorrow, just to make sure lining up the carb, reeds, gaskets all that front engine stuff is pretty self explanatory like any other engine correct? Just line everything up and make sure the gaskets are on correctly not blocking any holes.Leopards don't have a pulse hose, they have the pulse drawn thru an orifice machined directly thru the intake manifold into the mounting face of the carb. He does need to make sure the intake and reed cage gaskets are installed properly so that the hole in the gasket lines up with the orifice or it will not draw fuel.
Ok I’ll make sure to check all of these things outIt shold be a small hole that leads too the crankcase or intake tract .
Throuh the reed cage too a small hole on the carb .
Its how it pulses the diagram in the carb .
As long as you're there make sure its no plugged .
I believe its in the upper left .
Always install the carburetor with the fuel inlet/filter on top. Also make sure to lift up the carburetor while tightening the 2 nuts. This will line up the carburetor pulse hole with the intake pulse hole. Never set an idle; let the throttle shaft plate barely touch the adjuster screw. Check with your tech inspector if it is legal to cut you’re air-filter and any extra rubber flanges off right inside the air box. It is recommended to utilize the external screens on the inlet tubes. Also ask the tech director about the following item. Smear a heavy-duty axle bearing grease on the bottom of the airbox to potentially stop any debris from entering your engine. To properly install your airbox, you will want to fabricate a cradle mount that will allow the airbox to sit in a non-binding manner. Use rubber O-rings to secure the airbox to the cradle. Always check with the tech director on legal use of airboxes. Some rules are open and non-tech while others you must run the manufactured supplied airbox.
ok cool thats good to know, this weekend ill hopefully get everything checked outI checked my harness, the main ground has 2 ground wires connected into one ring connector. I am assuming your second ground wire is just the original 2 wires with replacement ring connectors.
