    So the heat shield is giving me fits. I'm trying really hard not to break any bolts. Gonna let the pb blaster chill for the evening.

    Somehow this evening murphys law didnt apply itself to my project. All the bolts came loose and everything went together smoothly. O2 sensor is installed.

    Here is the initial run. It's very rich at idle and cruising thru 3rd. 4th isn't bad just cruising but when u get on it then it starts leaning out then 5th is about the same unless I'm into the secondary.

    I was hoping just the sticker would make it run better.

    Oh you gonna get it now bro Adjust the air/fuel mixture screw to tame the rich idle (will be a piece of cake once you have the O2 sensor and a gauge installed). You really need to give your engine bay a big clean. Non caustic oven cleaner - try it. Cheap to buy, easy to get, works awesome and one can is usually enough for one lap of an engine bay.

    Do u think I went too big on the primary idle jet? It had a 60 originally and I put a 70. I've got a 65 to try too.

    Went to the 65 and its around 12.2 now. It still has some funny flat spots where it leans out under throttle in 4th and 5th gear.

    The more I run it the leaner it got to where it would hardly run. Went back to the 70.

    Primary idle has to be a touch rich to keep up with demand when you go in on-throttle.

    I wonder if the power valve could have went bad already? If I just shift normal it shows lean until I give it some more gas then u can hear the tone change and drops down around 13.8.

    I took a spare power valve (the part that threads into the bottom of the bowl) gutted it and soldered it shut. I found that it leaned it out all over the place, not just where I thought it should. Mine runs pretty well right now, I put a ton of miles on it, but I've experimented a bit with modifying the emulsion tubes. I may take a little bit off of the length of the power valve spring which should cause it to engage later, or possibly file down the top of the pin on the thread in valve.
    I have opened up exhaust and valves with undercut stems, so I believe I flow a bit better than stock. I was never able to get enough air into it at idle. Drilling a 1mm hole in the primary barrel throttle plate, opposite of the transition ports, made a world of difference for me. I also removed the idle air correction bushing and drilled and tapped it to accept the main fuel jets, so that I have better control over the idle circuit. I think the 2.6 is just a wee bit too big for the stock idle circuit.
    Now that you have a wideband, you will have many sleepless nights

    Sounds like tutorial material to me...

    Maybe when I get it right I've gone back and forth on a ton of things. It's certainly streetable tho, I commute 100 miles a day with it.

    Geezer commutes uphill in both directions too!


    I use to commute to San Francisco everyday as well. Just a couple miles under 100 a day. Truck was used for 10 years doing that drive and never failed.
