Dune buggy not running HELP!
« on: October 14, 2017, 03:10:22 PM »
I am 13 years old and have been working on a Honda odyssey 1981 dune buggy. I rebuilt the engine, replaced ignition coil and CDI. I cleaned the carburetor and mounted a gravity fuel tank. I can get it to kick over with starting fluid but I can not get it to run. It also has an electric starter but it does not work very well. I usually just try the pull starter. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey,

Does it have spark? if not it could quite possibly be the wiring harness. I had tons of electrical problems on mine and i replaced everything but nothing worked until i replaced the harness.
If it has spark then maybe check the compression and see if it has good compression. it also could be something in the carb. I would suggest cleaning out the jet in the carb becasue they get clogged quickly with twostrokes. If it still dosnt work then check and see there is being fuel being delivered to the carb.


If  you need help with any of this, message me.

Hope this helps!
