Hello all :)
Just wanted to let you know I haven't given up. I'm looking forward to getting back into this project. My elderly Father has had quite a bit of health problems and my free time has been quite limited. Don't get me wrong, I love my dad and I am not complaining. I'm currently putting an elderly friendly garden together to hopefully keep him motivated and happy. Just tuff going thru this :'(   Anyway........ Sorry for the rant, will be back soon. Marty

Odyssey FL250 / Re: 1981 FL250 Won't Start When Warm
« Last post by Marty on February 04, 2021, 06:16:42 PM »
No, It should still start at 119. I've seen them running between 150 - 100 psi. (100 being pretty low).  You can always put a little 2 stroke oil in the plug hole before screwing on your compression tester. If you see an increase in psi readings it's because the oil is helping to seal the rings.
On to your warmed up starting problem....... This one's tough cause they usually start easiest when their warm? If you hadn't said you are getting spark when hot I would look towards the electrical/plug side. One thing you could try is to get a new 2 dollar spark plug, gap it and swap in the new plug after it's warmed up. This would rule out a slightly fouled spark plug since you said it's getting too much fuel (running rich) and it's cheap to try.  If it is getting too much fuel only after the engine is heated up, I can't figure out why the carburetor is supplying more fuel only after being run? I would think if your floats are improperly set or your valve seat is not working you'd have these issues cold as well. When it is running do you have any fuel coming out of your carb overflow hoses? There is very little fuel pressure being built up just by spinning the motor with the recoil starter so why flooding then? Just to be sure this is a stock fl250 gas tank/pump and not gravity fed - correct?

The manual says spec compression is 129. I see what you're saying though. Maybe 125 PSI is still enough to make it start, but 119 isn't enough. I just wouldn't think that would be enough to make a difference.

If it is getting too much fuel, any ideas why it would only do that when warm?
