70 Panther with kohler 399 flooding
I have a 70 panther with a 399 kohler we I got running this year. I rebuilt the carb with a gasket kit (no springs or orings metal parts etc). It will start and run for 15 min or so then it seems to flood out. After it floods out a few times starting fluid wont even help it start. I took apart the carb, put it back togather and it started. 15 minutes later it did the same thing.
It has a walbro wr-1 carb, would that be the original, or has it been replaced?
What are the factory settings for the high end and low end screws?
Are ther any settings or measurements inside the carb for the float that I should check?
Can the carb fill up with gas and restrict suction of fuel?
i'm running it with oil mix at 20:1, will this cause problems?
I'm out of ideas.
