Hi guys,
Got a manic 36 twin but have a few probs with it and wonder if anyone on here can help.
The main prob I have is that when I go to start it I have problems. I prime it up (use roto start and cover exhaust for 5-10 secs) and then I put glow starts in and try to start it up but it either takes ages and many goes at starting it or I give up coz the roto start motor gets hot. I’m not sure what is going wrong! I have tested the glow plugs and they light up but I do notice that when I take out that I don’t see any fuel in the whole. Am I meant to? Also I don’t know if I may need to replace the glow plugs and seal as I don’t think they have been changed since car was brought.

If anyone can help, that would be great!

Ive owned a manic now for over 3 years.

As a precaution, remove the gloplugs, are they the original ones supplied with the car by schumacher? I had nothing but problems with the originals so i replaced them with a pair of OS No.8's. same lmugs for for over 3 years and still runs perfect.

Return the carb settings to factory settings HS needle 3 turns from closed, LS needle, 1.5mm in from flush and 1mm for the idle screw.

Fire it up. If your still having problems drawing fuel there may be an airleak somewhere. This will require taking the backplates off and i personally use a high temp silicone sealant.   &
