Default Re: Effigy's history

So after waiting 3 weeks due to "backorder" I got some new weber jets in the mail last night. Swapped my idles for 57's today, set the timing at 12* at idle and 30* full. idling about 900-1100 or so. turned the mixture screws out about 1.25-1.5 turns and it's running much better..

Took it up the street, shifting around 5000rpms, i made it up to around 50mph in 3rd gear, it had one loud backfire around 3000rpm in 2nd, but it only did it once.

got home, shut it down, let it cool for about 10 minutes and it fired back up first try. Still not perfect, but significantly better than it was.

I have to wait for Safelite (Charger needs a new windshield), but once that gets taken care of, gonna go run some errands in the bug and see how it's doing..
