I have been fighting this 1406 EdelBOG for awhile now. It had the typical off idle bog and after installing a new pump, and using the different adjustment holes with no real improvement, just a little bit better. Well, guess what the trick ended up being.....BENDING the friggin rod a little at a time until it finally would give an instant fuel shot........then I fiddled around with the step up springs, starting with the heavy one, working to the light ones until "waaalaaa", the damn thing goes pretty good from off idle. NOW to figure out the secondary huge "hole" or bog when they kick in.....
