175 stalls when put into gear

Post by djmik » Sat Aug 29, 2020 8:52 pm

Several weeks ago, picked up my barn find 1965 puch 175 as my winter stay in the basement project.

1). cleaned gas tank
2). drained fluids and replaced
3). checked and got spark ( with the old plug).
4). Cleaned carb and air filter.

Checked to see it if would start and after about 10 kicks......YES IT DID and even idlied on it own!!!

PROBLEM: When i put it into gear......it cuts out???

any guess???
