    Sadly there is no fuel shutoff valve, The Tank is lower than the Carb, pump is needed to pump up fuel to carb. I did treat the gas with Seafoam, both times I siphoned the tank...as mentioned in OP, I syphoned the tank twice, to hopefully dilute the...

    The Ruckus is a 4 cycle, liquid cooled motor. It's one of the selling points that sold me on this scooter. I did pull the spark plug...It 'looked' good, I sprayed some carb cleaner on the electrode and rubbed it with a custom curved pointy...

    I've had this 2003 Honda Ruckus scooter for 3+ years. I love it, to run around town with, running errands and such. For only 49cc it is pretty peppy with an old fat man driving it. BUT, it has been running lean for the last month, especially when...

    Next time you melt some lube, put a cooking thermometer in the lube. Beeswax shouldn't be heated above 185ºF, it will start to turn brown and begin to scorch. Now 666+1 will probably withstand a little more heat than 185, due to it being only...

    Some years back, I bought a large quantity of 99.9% tin. I, then, cast some tin boolits, I used a Lee 50 cal real mold...Honestly I don't know why I bought that mold? I had no use for it. But, I'll never mistake a Lee 50 cal Real tin boolit for...

    Yep, I agree 100%. I have a couple friends (gun owners) in my town, that if the convenience store ran out of caffeinated pop(soda), they'd be hospitalized or locked up within 48 hours, LOL.

    If factory ammo feeds good, then COAL is probably the largest factor. Meplat size is probably second. If the FTF is caused by the shoulder of a SWC or case mouth...then changing boolit style and/or crimping the case mouth a little more, should...

    These threads always crack me up. Talking to us boolit casters about being prepped, is surely preaching to the choir. I suspect every serious boolit caster "always" has a full pantry, as well as enough supplies (like gasoline) to outlast the...
