Stella automatic w/ sidecar

PostPosted: Sat Sep 03, 2016 6:58 pm    Post subject: 2014 Stella automatic with sidecar not starting Reply with quote

I am having issues with my Stella not starting
I'm pretty sure it is because I need my carburetor cleaned out
I went and got a bottle of the spray to do the job and when I opened it all up I could not determine where my filter and carb is at - it Isabella automatic so the placement is a little different

Can anyone direct me to the carburetor and some tips on how to get this done?

I love my Stella but the little hiccups with repairs and such is getting annoying when I only have 250 miles on it

Easiest way to get the carb out is to drop the engine out a bit.

Because you self diagnosed your carb need cleaning, you may find a second opinion on this page. http://www.modernbuddy.com/forum/topic27388.html

I would go thru these suggestions... vent the tank... un-kink the fuel lines (if any), and dump in some HEET and try a restart.
If that fails, then maybe someone can answer you on how to access the carb.
Good luck

It's not too bad if you have the tools. By far the easiest way I've pulled the carb out.

Try some K100 carb cleaner. It may just do the trick if its a clogged jet. Also, you can get to the fuel drain on the carb. Open that and make sure you HAVE fuel. Then add a 1/3 bottle of K100 to gas tank. crank till you get fuel coming out of drain. Close drain. Crank some more to see if it starts. If not. let it sit overnight to clean the carb. Then try again tomorrow,.
