My vespa has been riding kinda rough lately. I thought it might first have been the spark plug.
I ordered one, then changed it. all on my own :)
(I was surprised at how long it took me to find it)
but that didn't fix the problem. I was determined to figure it out, though.
so then I went after the carburetor. I took off some other parts that really didn't need to be taken off but at least I know how to do it now! Gregory helped out a ton, like when I needed to empty the tank via holding the fuel line to a gas container for about 5 minutes. We both did not really know what we were doing but we got the carb out, I sprayed it with carb cleaner inside and out, and stuck it back in. the cleaning and a minor tweak to my idle intake made all the difference! Im so proud of myself :)
its running beautifully now. I hope it stays that way
Lately it has been raining a lot. I keep getting caught in it. very frustrating. and painful, hah. it makes me wanna buy a car... there I said it. lol
and here is a giant watermelon I found a couple weeks ago in kristi's hometown Luling, TX
