Default Savage 25 problem ...

I played around with my Savage today and for the first half hour it was running fine.. Then it just kept bogging out.. it took a while to start it back up and when i try to accelerate it wud die again.. i looked at the fuel line and there was about an inch of hose with fuel in it going to the engine, then it was a gap up to the fuel filter. does it just need to be adjusted?too rich or starving? thanks for the help

maybe your fuel filter has got an air leak?

Ihad the same problem with my buggy, all i did was cut off the ends of the fuel lines about 1/8 of and inch and made sure the fittings where nice and snug, after that I reconnected all the lines and problem was solved for me.

Watch where the air starts in the fuel line, there's your problem.
I'd start with a couple dollars worth of new fuel lines from the pipe and to the carb.
