Hello Listers, I have just finished a bit of a tune up on my MK2 1147 engine. After setting the valves at .012, new plugs, points, condensor, rotor, and dist. cap and timing, it does seem to run more

Pull out the choke. That will richen the mixture quickly. Bill --original message-- ... My question is, is there a simple way to make the mixture richer so I can see if the flatting out is fuel star

You may want to try changing the damper piston oil. The problem you describe could mean no oil in dashpots or too lightweight of an oil. Conversely it could also mean to thick of an oil and the pist

Thanks for all of your responses. It revs well from idle (no load). But this is just blipping the throttle... don't want to alienate the neighbors. Today I will: Change the dashpot oil (30 wt OK?) Re

Try different type of oil in the dashpot. On my 78 running dual HS2's I'm using automatic transmission fluid, but you can try 20W50 or 10W30 motor oil. Dave |\ | | | _________________________________

Check your vacuum advance - the diaphragm may be shot in which case you're not getting enough advance when you jump on the pedal. Also - you can try power-timing - keep advancing the timing, test dri

Thanks for all of your input. Some fresh 30wt oil in the dashpots helped a lot. It still stumbles but not nearly as much. One of my books suggested that if you raise the dashpot piston manually 1/32

As Columbo used to say...one more thing. Is it possible to run too rich at idle and too lean at speed? The reason I pose this question is that in playing with the carb linkage a few minutes ago I not

It sounds like you probably have worn throttle shafts. Easiest way to tell is, while the engine is running, shoot a little carb cleaner where you think there might be a leak. If the engine changes rp

The Gunson Carbalancer is absolute rubbish! Do not buy! Get a decent one made out of metal - the Gunson one is all plasticy. I havent tried the Clickadjust - but I've been tempted to but it each time

I can't claim to be any good at tuning carbs, but I've always found balancing them very easy with nothing more than a length of plastic or metal tube about 3/16" bore put to my ear, listening to each

Bill, I agree with this one.... a length of pipe is perfect for this - that's all I use - it might help to be musical with this though... :o) Having said that - the one occassion that I managed to ge

Maybe years of tuning guitars has helped :-) Take the plugs out and tighten the fanbelt more than you would for normal use. You can then use the fan to turn the engine over. Don't forget to re-adjust
