Predator Carb Help

Hey everyone,

I just bought a Predator carb off ebay a few weeks ago. After getting it I disassembled it partially to get an idea of how it worked and to clean and lube it. When I took the accelerator pump off the spring and ball bearing came out. I did'nt see where they came from so guessed when I put it back together.

I installed the carb and it has a bog just off idle. I'm guessing I re installed the ball and spring wrong. Anyone have a diagram, picture or even a hand drawing they could send me as to how they go back together?

I tried emailing Predator but it looks like they are out of business? I got an auto reply saying they would be gone for the next 2 weeks. And I can't access the message board (if its still working)

Thanks
Jordon

Thanks for the link, it looks like it is the same carb but I can't find a model number on it anywhere lol.

I just cant seem to find any pics or diagrams for this thing. My understanding is they came with manuals with pics, hopefully someone still has one.

Shane -- I have a close friend, a long-time home builder here in the SF bay area, who ran one. He did NOT run it for long, as it was a "trial". But he tried both a carb with and a carb without the idle circuit (the one with I think was referred to as a street model). He loved them both. He claimed the performance was noticably better. But without the idle circuit the one was not too user-friendly. And the one with the idle circuit cost enough that he backed away from buying.
