I resleeved and put a new connecting rod in my OS .12 CVX.  It still idles
lower and lower after running it a while then it will stall easily when it
idles.  It is much better than before, but for spending $50 on repairs, I am
dissapointed.  Any ideas?  Thanks

 I've had pretty good resualts with the 3 resleeves I did but I don't think the
CVs run as good as they did from the box. I've never had a piston/sleeve set
fit as tight as the original stock set.
 I tried the DuraTrax ABC set for the CV.12 that was $30 pissed away!!!!! It
was worse then the worn OS set I took out.

Yes, I installed it correctly and it runs better than before the rebuild,
but not satisfactory.  I got the same DuraTrax ABC set.  Is duratrax cheap
or somethin?  I was also told that there bearings are second rate.

If it dies from idle after being warmed up, your low end needle is either
too rich or too lean.  It sounds like its too rich, because you say it idles
lower and lower.

Most people set their low end needle too rich because their high end needle
is too lean.
