Oh yeah, are the tachos easy to wire up?
Also possibly illumination to pick up from lights, depending on 3 or 4 wires. Hope your tacho installation works better than mine didDead easy, switched live, engine earth and signal to neg side of coil.
Nice work Pork!I got brave and went outside to put carbs back on after adjusting idle mixture,
Still doesn't idle, I've been gradually adjusting the mixture.......but still won't idle, I have the idle speed screw wound in, and still have to keep a but off throttle to keep it running, I have no idea of the revs yet as I'm still to attach tacho. Also is sounds very tappy (if that means something to someone )
Here a vid off it running, skip to 2:23 for how I have to get it started still.
Yes, I know I'm an idiot, and yes, I have made this a bit hard for myself, so hope someone can help
Thanks for any input
"Also it's very tappy sounding from under rocker"
Thats sounds like valve clearances then neil. Did you not have this head stripped fully? Recheck rocker arms etc?
i set our kart tappets by adjusting the clearance down to zero, the back it off 2 flats of the nut neil (1/3rd of a turn) you could set yours like that for now
Are all 4 carbs flowing correctly? Maybe leaning out on a couple of cylinders?
by blowing down the overflows your effectively pressurising the float chambers and pushing fuel down the inlets. From playing with my carbs id say you have blocked pilot jets
yeah those jets can be white knuckle tight, make sure you have a very good fitting screwdriver, with relation to the idle mix screws a good starting point is to screw them all the way in the unscrew them 3 turns out. i think mine are currently 2.5 turns out i think :-/I shall have a go at that too.
The last set off carbs I stripped down, those jets (with flat head slot in) they were VERY tight in there, even snapped one if them.
Hope these are a littke more forgiving
