Hey guys, just purchased my 1989 Power Ram 50 about a week ago. At the time I purchased it I didn't notice, but it has a bit of a problem.
The engine seems to "miss" about every third rotation or so when idling. It still has good power from about 1200 to 3000 rpm, then the power band dies off pretty quickly after that. The idle "miss" is also causing the brake booster to pulse when braking.
I've checked the coil, replaced the dist. cap and rotor, the plug wires are brand new, plugs look great, air filter is clean, all vacuum lines look to be in proper order, have not been able to find any vacuum leaks, have adjusted the distributor's position, and tried to adjust the carb settings, all to no avail.
I'm kind of leaning toward a float being out of adjustment on the carburetor, but wanted to get a second opinion before digging into it.
