  • 50 Champ normal idle speed.

    My 6 cyl. 1950 Champion runs fine at or above 1800 rpm. Below this it stalls. Is this normal or is there a problem with the carb ?

    650 is normal RPM, the carb may be flooding out, ignition system, vacuum advance, centrifugal advance problems etc.

      Maybe a vacuum leak.
