BG tech...

Got the carb apart and going through it now. I will check these items. It has a 2,500 rpm stall converter. Upon taking the carb apart I found, on the secondary side only, in the area that the power valve would be a thimble amount of a black jelly looking substance. The primary side was clean as new. Not sure if that would cause our issues or not but I plan to clean it up a install new gaskets. I also switched the power valve to a 45 from the factory 65 because my vacuum is between 10 and 11". I will also increase timing to 16 degrees as advised by the BG hotline and report my results soon. I am concerned though that much over 12 degrees and I will have starting and or run on issues, we will see what happens.
