Leaner and meaner
In other news: Knowing that I have a remedial level of knowledge of carburetor tuning, I dug up some information about how to do a basic tune on 40 IDF carbs. After some trial and error, I was able to get them to run pretty nicely (albeit a bit rich). I took it out for a quick drive and once off the line, it runs strong. The 'off the line' part stumbles because it's running rich. I may try to lean them out a bit tomorrow if I have time. I think I've learned a little about carburetor tuning and accomplished a little along the way. It'll be nice if I am successful at getting these to work better.
The steering on the car still feels super loose on the front end. The fuel tank is near empty and the spare tire wasn't in the trunk but it still felt loose for what was there...I may just be biased due to the very flat feeling in my daily driver with AWD and fairly wide tires.
Soon, it'll be time to tackle the doors...I've got 24 days before we move and probably half that before the car is picked up. The pick up date will be determined in the next day or two.
