Re: 87 Spree gets hot and stalls while riding.

Re: 87 Spree gets hot and stalls while riding.

Still can not get it to run right. Adding oil did not work, made it run rich. drilling the gas cap did not work. still stalls after riding about 5 miles running WOT. What should i do next?

Re: 87 Spree gets hot and stalls while riding.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was also thinking my oil pump may not be working properly. Can i just add like 4 bottle caps of oil to my tank and see if that changes anything?

Now I have it so it will crank (barely it is very hard) and it doesn’t idle and doesn’t accelerate good (AT ALL). I was wondering what this problem is. I got a new carburetor in it now. Still does the same is...
