Haven't done the compression test lately.  I'll add that to the list for this
weekend.  As far as I can tell the float levels are set correctly (1/8 inch).
 I don't know about the fuel pump pressure.  Some may remember the "constant
clicking" fuel pump question I posted recently. I haven't been able to
investigate the pump thoroughly yet, but I do have a good visible fuel level
in the jets.  Is there a simple way to measure the fuel pump psi?

I have the Haynes SU carb manual.  The tuning description looks very
familiar, but I don't remember seeing the ale and voodoo parts!  I just knew
I must have been skipping critical steps!

ps.  I have to be away from my car AND my computer next week over the
holidays (expecting severe withdrawal symptoms), so I'll have to get back to
everyone on what I've found after new years.
