    If there's nothing wrong with the head I wouldn't risk causing a problem by getting it converted, just carry on with using an additive. At 4p per litre (e.g. for Castrol Valvemaster)it's cheap enough.

    Correction, 14 degrees dynamic would occur at about 2000 rpm.

  • Paul Hunt17 April 2014

    If you do lean it out, only ever alter both carbs by the same amount in the same direction, or you will unbalance them.

    14 degrees, if that is at the original 1000rpm, is a lot more than it was previously, originally that figure would only have been reached at 4000 rpm. But as Michael and Paul say, the original figures are pretty meaningless with today's fuels and worn distributors, even i...

    Before anyone comes on and says that this should be on the general section, if indeed it should be on at all, I would strongly disagree.

    The local authorities all have a responsibility for upkeep of the adopted roads. Private roads, car parks, peoples driveways, and un adopted roads (like the one to the back gate of our local school) are not their responsibility.

    Always take photos of pot holes and damage to vehicles there and then.

    There is someone responsible for the adopted roads at all LA's and they have a statuto...

    with the end closed so the hood can be put down.

  • TLW Wright17 April 2014

    i know there have been many threads on this. but i thought maybe someone had not seen one they liked yet and might want one like this one. the piece was about 28 bucks plus freight. it comes with 2 different length arms. i used the shorter ones. it runs thru so both sides can be up.
    it is stainless. the ends have a plastic coating on them to keep the hood paint in tact. (hoep you can see that)...
