Depending on what the carb is set like, you may need to richen up the idle screws and then compensate by lowering the curb idle screw until you get a good idle.
the carb is pretty new, my dad had it on his 355 for a month if that, and swithed to a double pumper,, we have went back and forth on the the idle screws time and time again. would this cause the motor to shut off like it is? The carb is a 650 eddy. the carb performed great on the 355. what about the vacuume, if it is low that could cut the motor off cant it
