Love it when the fix is that simple :D

I knew it had to be something simple, since the engine is so basic to begin with. Sucks that it took so much effort to find out, but in the end, you have basically gone through the whole ignition and fuel system, so that 184 should be running in top shape for a long time.

Congratulations, Rick. Glad it was so simple, after all. And what a great thread for newbies (and oldies who forget in the middle of the battle) on how to diagnose in a methodical manner, and eliminate causes.

Wonderfully done!

Congrats Image on finding the fix. Sometimes it is the stuff that we never think of and then it seems so simple we wonder why we never saw it...

C'est la vie just about sums it up. Sure glad you were able to resolve it. :!:

Thanks everyone :D I returned the cub back to the owner. He was happy as can be that it was running again.
