Has anyone used the Longflow air filter on a Spit with a ZS carb?
Has anyone successfully removed the charcoal canisters?
Here is what I have found.
If I remove the charcoal canister and plug the hole on the carb the car

Note when the car runs all other holes on the canister are plugged.
If I remove the air filter (big black can) the car will not run smoothly
I have tried tuning the car with the air filter off. Runs fine up to

the old air filter

Here is my tuning procedure. I adjust the A/F ratio with the special ZS

¼ turns or less.
I do not see much of a change between ¼ turn too rich and ¼ turn too
lean. Is this

any crud. Could
I have a partly blocked line?
I hope that someone out there can help me with this one! I don't know
