        It's fixed and running like a sewing machine now.  The problem wa=
a bad intake manifold gasket.

I did spray carb cleaner all over the spacer/insulating block and where i=
connects to carb and heat shield but I was rather nervous about spraying
next to the exhaust while revving the engine up.  Messing about the carb
mixture just confused the issue - I had them so weak at one stage they we=
back-firing out the carb throats. =

        All's well that ends well.  It's been a real pleasure driving to
work now it's cooling off somewhat here in NC, eh what!.  We've even had
some foggy and misty mornings - excellent for top-down cruising.  I get t=
work all refreshed instead of feeling half asleep.  Of course, driving ho=
from work is even better!

Regards,   Adrian
