    • Thats an awesome piece of info Justa!
    • I waay agree on the converter.   Your the painter, scuff best you can N repaint with engine HOT paint.  You would never get a chem stripper off totally with all the sand imperfections in the castings.  Paint would peel back off.  That said, you wouldn't get all the old paint off the casting.  I LOVE my Dremel tool with a LIL wire wheel, if ya wanna go the hard way.  So happy to hear your gonna try to make the DC this year!!  AWESOME.  Keep in touch and we will try to get you in with our Pontiac Widetrackers so we can park together and hang out.  Great news.
    • When adjusting your idle/mixture screws, (right/wrong) I always start with 1 1/2 turns out from seated.  I always do the left side 1st.  Go out 1/4 turn at a time til highest rev is achieved, then the right side, same. Go back and repeat for final adjust.  Now for most your close enough.  If you unplug a manifold vacume line.  Plug the hose and attach a vacume gauge,  now repeat adjustments using highest vacume acheived for both screws.  Remember the vacume runs the advance for your distributor, so the best levels will throw in your advance quicker.   Right or wrong, this is the way I was taught from my Dad and it has always worked for me. Esp on small displacement motorcycle/ snowmobile engines to sync multiple carbs.  Vacume gauge is also a good way to check your hoses as well.  You can check both ends of a hose to make sure it doesn't have a split somewhere in the line and that your getting same readings at both ends.  That's my story, I'm stickin to it.  The more cool tools you have always impress the ladies too.....  OK maybe NOT.
