I could use a little advice from some of you that ha e even wrenching on the ol machines longer than me and familiar with the 300's. I've gotta 94 300fw and put a top end with a fresh bore, new piston kit, rings, head job with new seats and seals, new valves, springs, new rockers in the rocker box, sprocket, cam, DID chain, and gasket and seal set all Honda parts and G & H did the machine work and head. I also put a new Shindy kit in my carb after stripping the carb down and running it through my sonic cleaner. Installed new fuel line and in line filter as well.
Got her all back together and she won't hardly get out of her own way! I've checked timing probably 3 times at least and adjusted the valves, which was correct after the 1st time but had to start somewhere lol. I ruled timing out since it fires up as soon as you hit the button, I mean better than it ever has and then started thinking maybe the centrifugal clutch or something in the right side case may be a tad outta whack but she takes off through all the gears, shifts great, no weird clanking or other noises so ruled that out also.
So the only thing I can conclude it's the carburetor but still not positive. I talked to @jeepwm69
today and he seemed to be on board with what I was thinking after knowing all the details, as well as suggesting I post my issue here and see if @toodeep
has any ideas or suggestions other than adjusting the pilot jet on the carburetor. I've played with it a little and it's gotten a little better but still just really weak and will barely go in the ditch and pull up the other side, which isn't very steep and should have done it with ease and would before this 2nd little go around of repairs.
It got to a point to where it went up better but still real sluggish and not pulling like it should, even just taking off through a flat field going through the gears.
Like I said, it's getting better but I still feel like I've missed something, something small and very stupid 🤣🤣🤣! I'm ready to listen to any and all suggestions anyone has so bring it on boys, let the games begin!!!! Oh, and by the way....I've been fooling with this flippin thing for several weeks and several of us are going Saturday to Kentucky to ride so I'm seriously running outta time! 🤯😁😳🤢🤣 923;🤣🤣🤣🤣!!!! I have mixed emotions as to if it'll adjust and be ok or not but it almost has to because it starts so friggin well and idles perfectly and sounds amazing with no tricks, valve noise or anything so that's why I listened to Jeep and posted here and bounce it off ya'll. I greatly appreciate any suggestions or experiences had like this or questions for me, just whatever at this point, so what do ya'll think?
