I need help with these carbs.
It came with the stock 132/38. I never ran the engine with these. The left carb's jets were completely plugged.
I put in 130/35 per the manual for 4000+ft altitude. Part throttle had lean stumbling, full throttle felt okay.
I add a shim to the needles, no jet change. Runs great except for a slight hesitation 5000-6500rpm at full throttle. No problem maintaining 80mph on the highway. Plugs are slightly brown and dry.
I replaced the main jets to 132, left the pilots and shims alone, did not remove the carbs for this, just the bowls. Now above 1/3 throttle is dead in both cylinders. Won't make enough power to go above 35mph. Idles great.
What am I doing wrong? I have seen people here jet MUCH larger without complaints.
