Hey Guys,

I've recently started acquiring a few scooters 2 of which are 83/84 Lead 80's.

Currently trying to get one running.
it sat for about 10 years.
I have stripped it and cleaned everything out pretty well.
It definitely gets spark, kicks over for a few strokes. (new plug)

I have 2 problems.

1. I think the petcock may be broken. I cleaned it well with carby cleaner
and blew through. New clear filter and I visibly cant see fuel passing through
it when cranking over. New petcock?

2. When it fires it kicks over for 3 or 4 strokes and then dies. If you try to
start again immediately it just cranks over. White smoke comes out of the
carb looks almost like cigarette smoke. I assume this is fuel burning?

Any help would be tops or even pointers in the right area to find the info.

Cheers. :)
