- Starting at the fuel tank, I installed an in tank filter, a new fuel strainer assembly, an new steel fuel line, cleaned the carb and the metering valve following all the advice on each of those subjects on this forum.
- That was after pulling the head and freeing up sticky valves and adjusting them
- and checking the points,
- putting the spark plug wires in the correct order, etc, etc., etc.
Results of my starting at the beginning, going step by step, and not jumping around I now have a perfectly running Cub. Don't get caught up in one problem after another. Start at the beginning and go thru it all. The results will be worth it.
