Default Re: Mystery missfire .

With an updraught carb its not as easy. Run a hose into the container, put the other end of the hose into the carb throat, then hold your hand or a rag in the carb throat to make enough vacuum in the tube to suck some up. Either Sea Foam or Marvel Mystery oil is a miracle cure sometimes.
