RamFlo filters BURN!

My first engine fire!

I cleaned ups as much as I could.

I guess a little burned plastic and foam in the carb can't really hurt the engine.

Anyone else have this happen?

I had one go up a couple weeks ago. I have since fixed the little back fire issue, but I don't think I'll be installing a new Ramflo anytime soon. I pulled my carb top off, and cleaned out EVERY last bit of burnt, stinky plastic, and made sure everything was good and clean before startign it up again.

Is this a timing issue or jetting issue? I have sidedrafts and they squeek and backfire out the carbs. They also must leak out gas too because on the inside bottom there is well that gassy oily mess. I changed the filters the other day because well I figured with a bad backfire I could have a fire like you guys.

Thanks,

Bryan

Typically though, a backfiring carb is from retarded timing. Mine was popping ever since installing the Pertronix, and setting the timing with a light. I set it by ear, and all has been well since.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
