Have you checked your float levels (and for sediment in the bottom of the
bowl)? Check your throttle shafts for leakage with some WD40. Do your
pistons drop with a solid "thunk" when the engine is off? (no, I don't mean
on the ground... no not those pistons!)<G> If they don't, either your jet
isn't centered or the pistons and the inside of the bells need some
spiffing up. After that, do you have both butterflies opening at the
exactly the same time (synchronized)?
