Worked on the quad runner problem
I wanted to ride up into the hills today and work on some springs but the quad runner wasn’t running right. The last time I used it, the engine wanted to die a couple of times and it did but it got going enough to get home.
I figured there must be something wrong with it getting gas. Maybe a clogged filter or a bad fuel pump so I needed to take it apart and check things out.
Must be the carb
Every thing looked like it should work as there was plenty of gas getting to the carb. I put it back together for another test drive thinking if the problem is still there it must be something in the carb.
I got the tools I needed to work on the springs and rode up into the hills. The quad worked well until I pulled into the spring area where it sputtered a bit but kept running.
I built a small clay dam in back of it and put some plastic and rocks on it to hold the things down.. The actual spring tap is back under the hill a couple feet so this one is fairly well protected already. I dug blue clay out of the hole on the right to use for the small dams.
Full water tanks
I did stop at our water tanks to check the water level and they were all full which was good.
Strawberries and taking it easy
On the way home I stopped at my brother’s strawberry patch and ate a few or so. Yummy.
Back home I decided the quad’s problem must be in the carb but I wasn’t in the mood to take it apart right now so I didn’t.
The rest of the day was spent chair hopping and puttering around the yard doing mostly nothing except supervising the chickens a bit.
