once i get the idle set I can zero in the timing and then work on tuning the carbs.. but hey, baby steps :) it runs gain so I'm relatively happy for now..

edit: also have a good amount of white smoke coming out of one exhaust pipe.. I'm guessing it's because that glasspack is brand new so maybe there's shit inside that needs to burn away or something.. should i be concerned?
Fer the cable shouldnt have to adjust the cable for idle speed........I wouldnt think anyway.....should just be a stop screw on the carb.....I see it in yer other pic.....its at the 12 oclock behind the wheels.
Life is like a game of monopoly,but you know who the losers are before the game ends.
