let us know how it runs for you with the fixes and tune up you did now.
Actually I fired it up and checked the timing today, here is the weird thing...At idle (about 1000-1100rpms) the timing reads around 30-36 degrees, and when I rev it it stabilizes right to 34-35 degrees..It seems as if it is locked out cause i can not seem to retard it at idle..Ever see that before?
On s die not it seems like the carb is fairly well tuned so far, a little rich at idle you can smell it, but when you rev the engine in quick short stabs it revs right up with no hesitation or bog at all..
Any suggestion on the timing thing?
