I have a stock ZS 150cd Carb. I haven't tried to adjust the air to fuel yet
I haven't bought the tool for it. I know I should but everytime I order
something from one of the suppliers I forget order it. I know the carb is
running a little rich but the car runs good with plenty of pep so I didn't
want to mess up the adjustments untill I really know what I am doing. I
bought the spitfire last summer and have only put a couple of thousand miles
on it. this winter I redid the front suspension and put new Koni shocks all
the way around. Next week it is going into the shop to be reuphostered
completly and have a new canvas top put on. If you think I need to readjust
the carb I will probably try that.
Thanks for the advice.
