    After I cleaned and reassembled my carburetor, I put it back into my Schwalbe.
    Do I have to do something now? Leave the fuel tap open for half an hour or something? so that the carburetor fills up?
    Or can I just hit them and that's it?
    Thanks,
    Tobi

    The carburetor pan should actually be full in a few seconds after opening the gasoline valve. If you've done everything right, you can hit them right away. Don't forget that you have to readjust the carburetor.

  • Yes, that's right> Wait a moment for the tap and then> * Kick-me * and possibly, as already mentioned, improve (i.e. adjust)

    Despite the fall of the wall and the turnaround, Simsonpower without end!

  • just wait until it stops bubbling in the gasoline hose

    the bubbles will bring you close to the right moment

    Oi!

  • Hope that everything is put together correctly - open the petrol tap - kick off - have fun

    It doesn't matter, just turn it on and it's okay, as soon as the engine turns, it sucks in the gasoline, and if there is still air inside the tub, then it is also sucked in and is quickly out with it.
