Pilot screw setting process

Post by 754 » Wed Aug 08, 2018 11:04 am



I am just wondering if anyone has actually gone through the process as the book describes. I did replace the orings in the pilot screws as it was very needed, back last year. I counted the turns in to seated on each one then when I put them back, I ran them back to seated and turned them back out the number of turns I had written down. It fires right up, although it seems rich at idle *haven't pulled the plugs recently) but I can smell it. Plus I do notice a slight stumble just off idle. Plus there is still a slight surge of a few hundred RPM. The carbs are balanced per the book and vacuum gauges. It runs well, but the MPG is lower than it should be. I would say 25 to maybe 28. So I say that to say this would setting the pilots help out with my idle problems? Also what electronic tach did y'all use during the process? Idle jets are brand new from Honda, and I cleaned everything thoughly when I had them off when i got it.

As always thanks for all the help.
