Hi, I recently got an old Moto 4 running again but it still has a few issues.
1. It makes a knocking sound while the starter is turning the engine over.
2. I cant get it to idle down. The idle screw on the carb does not seem to make any difference. Sometimes I think the choke is sticking but not sure. Fooling with the choke helps, but I still can never get it the idle adjusted down to where its slow enough.
Does anyone have any ideas?
