Test fire done and out of the way. The water in
the fuel caused some issues so at this point the carb came off and
was thoroughly cleaned and kitted. Ran out of time so I finished
tuning the carb the next afternoon. The carb problem was the water
in the fuel and a float level adjustment for the new float valve.
The float height was touchy but I finally got it right. The air
mixture screw and idle screw were touchy as well. One little turn
either way caused me some serious grief. So far all the mods were worth it and 4th gear made
a big difference. The old engine set up was definitely down on power
and the overhaul was needed. Now we will ride around here for a
while to break in the engine then off to Beaver Sand Dunes for a
couple days of spring break in March.
