I have recently acquired a 1979 brat in need of several parts inluding tail lights, front parking light lens etc. unfortunatly I must also deal with a good amount of rust. My immediate problem is that the engine will not start without spraying "engine starter in the carb and then it will only idle. when I push th gas pedal it dies. help?

Welcome to the board!

 

Have you tried several gallons of carb cleaner?:rolleyes:

 

I'd think about getting some fresh gas and fuel filters too.....

 

Has the Brat been sitting a while? What is the history of this Brat?

The brat had been sitting for 4 years/changed gas and filter/ blew air thru feed line from filter to tank/ used carb cleaner and now it at least starts and runs with hesitation on acceleration/ now the plugs etc. thanks for the reply.
