Is there a leak in the carb? Sounds like it's running lean. Is the fuel line cracked or cut, how about the tank. Have you taken the carb off and cleaned it? If not, pull it appart and check for broken seels.

I would also replace all of your fuel lines. My wife's car would not even start this season. I tried several different trouble shooting techniques, none of which resulted in a starting car! As a last ditch effort, I replaced the fuel lines, and the engine turned over no problem! Silicone tubing is great, but I think it has a limited life-span on these hot little cars!

Sorry to hear that Graphite. Get a Novarossi engine. They are the best. He he.

an you post a picture of a Novarossi engine? so i can see it.

does your engine run fine to a cirtain point, then really sob when it gets nice and hot, if it does then u need a new piston and sleeve, the only alternative it making your engine REALY rich so it doesnt get very hot at all, i dont mean really really rich to the point of stall, but we want loads of smoke commin out that pipe if you know what i mean :)

i would do wat roadracer said. it sounds normal and the same thing happened 2 me, i took the whole engine and carb off to c if there was an airleak and the only problem was a hole in the pressure line.:mad:

Not sure on the price yet, but I hope it is below £175, which will be about $230 for you.
I know it;s a lot, but this engine is going to rock!
