    Mine came complete with the right chrome wheel nuts.

    I can't be sure if they were at extra cost but I don't think they were.

    2. Set the current time and allow the knob / winding stem release all the way back. ...

    I had exactly that problem at one time and as you have already suggested, traced it down to choke problems

    I had identical running rich symptoms for many years. I eventually sorted it with new jets being one of the causes but as that has been done the problem lies elsewhere. You say the pressure delivery is ok but do not say what it is. I found that to be the other contributing factor in my long quest to leaning out the mixture. I eventually got it correct at 1.5psi. In my opinion much mo...

    Maybe the old pipes were almost clogged and their ID reduced. Inspect them carefully...


    In case, 45 psi was the erroneous value and 25 is actually the pressure that reflects the wearout of your engine.

    I hope I'm wrong !

    Jiggle pin makes more sense I must admit. Maybe I misheard all those years ago!
