Clutch issue? Help!!!! Stalls when throttle applied. (VIDEO)
« on: March 13, 2018, 01:48:39 AM »
Hi all, im going insane trying to figure out why my Baja 5B SS stalls when i give it throttle.
Sometimes the clutch engages and the rest of the time the wheels dont move.

Please tell me your thoughts, the car has only been driven a few times, its been in storage for around a year,

Any help would be greatly appreciated !!!!

If you lift the back can you turn the wheels?

My thoughts are carby too, if its been sitting that long it is probably gunked up. Rebuild or replace the carby

Ok think i got to the answer!!

i sucked all the fuel out into a empty coke bottle, and noticed it was black, this seemed a bit strange, obviously the previous owner was on the same tank from when he was running it in. He must of used so much oil.

Compared to my new batch of 25:1 which had more of a "melted blue slurpee" colour to it.

Thanks all for your contributions ;)
