Thanks everyone for the information several weeks ago on the Grose Jet vs 
non-Grose jet controversy.  I pulled my carb to check the Grose jet - it 
appeared to run correctly, so I didn't change it.  It turns out that the 
problem I had was the orientation of that aluminum cylinder in the carb - 
I knew that there are markings on the rubber skirt that force correct 
alignment, but, due to a case of brain fade, I installed it wrong - ergo, 
no workie.....

Anyway, the MG starts & runs OK now, but I'm not sure how to tune the 
carb for max performance - the manual sez something about using a CO 
sniffer to set the idle mixture - does anyone have a lower-tech way of 
adjusting the carb???
