I just bought this SL2 for 200 bucks from my neighbor. They said it had jumped time. I just replaced the cahin, tensioner and all the guides in it and fired it up no problem. For some reason it won't idle smooth. It bounces the tack between 8 and 900RPM. Was wondering what might fix this problem and if I should be concerned that it is idling that way. Thanks so much it's nice to see people online that will actually help the average Joe with car problems.
