First, let me say a slightly belated welcome to the Greatest Forum on the Net and to the Cub Family
BD and John have given you some good advice already. However, I think a little judicious reading will go a long way to helping you understand your problem.
As a wise group of guys told me more than once, for an engine to run properly you need 3 things. Fuel, Fire and Air. If you have all 3 in the proper mixture it will run like a champ.
Sooooo, might I suggest that you read New Members and Visitors, Please READ
. The Cub FAQ's
are filled with a lot of really good general knowledge and the Cub Info
has some good trouble shooting tips. The Best of H.L. Chauvin
puts a humourous yet very helpful tone to fixing your Cub. The Won't Start articles will be really helpful. I would recommend using these articles in conjunction with the GSS-1411 Service Manual (available on the server), which should help you understand what is going on. Also, the Cub Manual Server
has lots of info to assist you as well.
You seem to have a good grasp of things, getting to where you are in only two weeks, so this should be a piece of cake for you. Before you know it, your Cub will be purring like a kitten and look real good too
Thirdly, might I again suggest that you visit Binder Books
, and order these manuals:
TC-37F Parts Manual
GSS-1411 Service Manual.
These three manuals will be the best investment that you can make as a new Cub owner.
Be nice if you were to post some pics of where you are at and as you go along. We always enjoy seeing someone's Cub project progress.
Again, Welcome to the Cub Family
