    I am working on a Elto Pal that won’t stay running. Anyone have the spec sheet for Poppet valve carbs. Has to do with valve lift and spring pressure.

    Thanks Birney

    The 1942 (?) manual for the Ranger says 3/32 lift, 3oz with valve on seat and approximate float level with float chamber full from top of bowl to the gas level 23/32 if that helps.

    You didn’t say what year it is. This is for 1938. Make sure the exhaust ports are not caked with carbon. That can happen when idling in cold water.
