So I tried to fire up my Ranger 8 today. It woud not run save for pouring gas down the carb. So I figure the carb is screwed up. I get a kit(50$ Ouch). Rebuild it. Still won't run. If it sits for a few mins it tries to kick off on it's own. Fuel Pump is working. Well there is a sol/plunger deal on the carb that apparently is not getting any power regardless of where i have the high idle/auto switch. I put power to the sol on the carb...Viola. It runs beautiful , but wide open(high like if welding). Obvioulsy this is the problem.
Now, my questions. If there is no power to the sol shouldn't it atleast idle or does it require some power and the switch is somesort of resistor deal ??
I pulled the side cover off. As far as I can tell with the Machine switch on there is no power going to the high idle switch. The 3 wires coming off it disappear into the harness. I know this thing gets triggered by demand so where do I start looking ? What could be wrong ?
