well I put the new carb on "DeeBus" Friday night and it started (hooray) ...... Saturday it was idling around 1200 rpm so I decided to adjust the idle (that's where I made the first mistake) b/c I decided I'll adjust the whole carb...... Well after 2 hours I can't get it to even idle right so I threw my hands up. took a shower and went to the Astros game Saturday afternoon with Dee and Kendall......Sunday I had to do other things and today I'm flying out to San Jose for the week as the company I work for was sold last Wednesday so everyone is flying in to find out what happens now........ But the new carb is on .............. that much is done and it doesn't leak... I'm trying to get with a friend to pull the engine this weekend to fix some leaks and tidy up some things I need done to it....

Still have to do the final tuning, bleed the cooling system and replacing collector gaskets. But seems to run much better. We will see.
