So my Buddy and I have another 4 wheeler to duck around with.
The scoop we were told is that it was parked for 5 years. The Carb shows signs of intense agreement. The words Gunk, goopy, varnishy, and oh f%$k seem to fit nicely as a good description of the inside of the carb.
She turned over fine with an new batt.
Oil will need to be changed, o'course.
Compression is great as well as good spark.
Last night we found the throttle body inside the carb siezed and the clutch was a bit sticky too. I forced the throttle open and we siphoned a spot of fuel into the carb as we turned the starter. like Ricky martins says "She bangs"
Without a rebuilt kit, we decided just to clean it as best we could and see if she will bang on her own. After about 30 minutes the carb was wrestled back in place and fuel was allowed to seep into the carb.
For some reason she will only run if I use my hand to restricted the amount of air entering the carb. Maybe the air filter also acts as a restrictor, but my gut tells me somethin in the carb is stuck open or shut.
On a good note we think the engine is in great condition. a good rebuilt carb and this thing will seem som hangtime, soon.
(also has broken A-arm but parts are cheap.)
Oh yeah I know it is a Yamaha Breeze. If anyone knows how I can find out an exact year and model # so I can find the right clymers, please let me know. I haven't done the research just yet.
