i replace the O-rings on my k-fisher yesterday. now my 02 is running very poorly and (worst of all) i don't know why.
it's sputtering and running very rough - almost like one of the cylinders isn't firing or not getting the right fuel mix. i thought that maybe one of the plugs were fouled so i replaced them but still not fixed.
up to yesterday it was running great. the only thing that i did was to replace those O-rings so I got to thinking that I did something to the k-fisher when i was playing around with the float valves. i didn't do anything extreme just poked at them a bit with a small screwdriver to see what they looked like. i didn't do anything bizarre and i'm pretty sure i put it back the way it was. i reopened all four of the hex-headed bolts tonight to see if any of the float valves were turned sideways or something but all looked OK to me.
any ideas? i tried to make sure that i kept anything magnatized away from the whole thing while i was working on it.
it's got me pretty confused and disappointed at the moment -my baby was running great before this.
what do you think? any thoughts on what i may have done that is causing this rough running? i can only think that it's something to do with the float valves and/or hex-headed bolts. is it possible that one of the valves can be turned upside down somehow? the float valves and hex-headed bolts were really the only thing that i touched between my baby running great and running rough.
any insights?
i appreciate any thoughts anyone can offer. thanks again for all the advice.
