Hi all -
As some of you may remember, not too long ago I rebuilt my Midget engine,
making a few changes as I went along. In the thousand or so miles I have
driven since then, it has become painfully clear to me that I need to
recalibrate my carburetion and ignition.
As to the carburetion, I think I'm going to go to a sidedraft Dellorto
that's been lying around since I bought it and discovered that it was too
much for the stock motor. Now that I no longer have a stock motor,
hopefully it will not be quite so overlarge for the application.
Moving on to the ignition, I'm pretty sure the car's wanting a new
distributor; The one I have seems worn out. Additionally, the stock
advance curve (as it is in the dizzy I have, anyway) is no longer correct.
I believe I need slower and possibly also more advance than the current
system provides. Does anyone have any hints as to how I would go about
doing this? I have heard of dizzys with adjustable advance curves; does
this simply mean that they offer many different weights and springs for
them, or are they actually adjustable? If not, is there a good
aftermarket distributor for which I can get different weights and springs
Waving to Will, low on our respective learning curves,
