Default Re: What did you do yesterday...

yesterday i installed my PLX AFR gauge.. today I tried to use it to really dial in my carbs.. no matter what jet changes I made, or how far in or out i screwed/unscrewed the mixture screws, nothing affected how it ran or the AFR numbers..

decided to check if I blew out a manifold gasket and maybe had a leak screwing me up.. nope. no leak, i broke one of my manifolds..



so it's a few hours later, engine is on the stand in the garage, gonna surf for new manifolds now.

this'll help me stop procrastinating.. i needed to yank the engine anyway to install the CHT sensors, and I wanted to yank it and the rear fenders so i can redo my access holes.. guess I can do that now..
