Re: Avanti bogging down

Did you do a leak down test on it? worth doing especially as you said you had problems with the drive side seal. The chamfer on some cranks doesn't always allow the seal to slip over with the result that the spring gets displaces from the seal, Definitely worth doing a test to rule it out. The othe...

Re: Avanti bogging down

Hi all Spoke to Ron, changed a few things including needle, atomiser and made no difference. Pilot was 50 not 55 as I previously stated so went to a 48, stayed the same. Air screw was already only 1/2 turn out so that was lean enough. All that's left is carb change, CDI change, stator change but ult...

Re: Bogging Down , Won't Pull Away.

I've got exactly this problem on an Avanti I rebuilt for my mate. We changed the crank and finally cured (after several attempts) the drive side oil seal failing with a rimini drive side plate. But now, it really bogs down in first and 2nd and you have to really rev and slip the clutch to get away....
