fl350 will not idle without throttle
« on: July 15, 2015, 06:37:47 PM »
My fl350 will not idle unless i have a tiny bit of pressure on the throttle.  It is new to me and I have never had it idle correct.  I have cleaned the carb and everything seems right.  It has a PJ37 keihn carb.  The cable has slack in it.  I am out of adjustment on the cable.  There is no screw to raise the slide.  Am I doing something wrong, or do I just need to get a shorter cable or put some sort of spacer in it?  The idle adjustment screw that is part of the choke doesn't seem to make a difference whether it is all the way in or out.

Thanks for any advise.

Try dropping the slow jet. If above a 45, try dropping to that.
