Re: Zenith Carburetor linkage sticking and stiff

You should be able to get a good driver for $9,000. By all means, you don’t have to buy the first one you come across. There are plenty out there. Take your time. If

Re: Seems like there's not enough fuel

Take out at least one plug and see if it is black and fuzzy. If so, clean the plugs.
