But this has me a little stumped kinda wanna figure out the problem and get it fix before the weekend ride thanks for the help :rebel: :florida:

Think I got it guys thanks a lot for the help I believe it was the float setting when I took it apart the last time I wasn't really aware of how to set it but guess you learn something new everyday.. hopfully that fixed the problem and my weekend goes as plan
