Pilot Screw turns?
Going by the service manual carb rebuilding section it states:
"Turn in the Pilot Screw and count the number of turns until it seats. This is to set the screw to it's original position when re-assembling"
What I counted was rather surprising. The front carb was close to what I expected at 1-1/4 turns, however the rear carb turned in 2-3/4 turns before seating. Both carbs had what I thought to be the factory plugs in the Pilot Screw tunnel.
Has anyone ever encountered such a vast difference?
It seems to me the last time I replaced these Pilot Screws in a Vulcan I just turned them in till they seated and then backed them out 1-1/2 turns.
