I have a 86 cougar. it keeps flooding out. if i turn off hte gas it will run
fot 3 to 5 min as soon as I turn the gas on it dies out ,turn the gas off
and boom 3 to 5 min s of riding. Ive changed the needle and seat and floats.
I was told it is probally the plungers on the chokes, any one else seen
this. its weird as soon as i turn the gas on boom it stalls. It is very
annoying. goin to night to get the plungers

I would still check the ***plungers...the *** pads sometimes rot
off and don't seat anymore.
Then to be sure they are set properly....measure the depth of the hole
they go in...then set the cables so they are set a millimeter or so
longer...get it??  I'm not sure exactly how to describe this to you!!!
Once the plugers are in and threaded down...the lever should have a bit
of play.  If it has no play.a good chance your ***is on.
