same here with my old honda cb750...I converted to dyna eletronic ignition...started in a nano second

however racers complained that they lost some power which was true on some bikes and ask any norton racer and they said the same points can be made to make more or less power provided you know what you are doing

anyways

Re: Carb Problem?

This particular engine has FWC and electronic ignition.

The manifold doesn't look particularly difficult to remove, but I said the same thing about the thermostat housing!
Just remove the rear two bolts holding the exhaust, the carb, and two hoses, and then the manifold, right?

I was thinking the Dremel might do a good job of polishing up everything, no?

Edit: Oops, looks like I may have to drain the manifold first, some great stuff on this site:

Re: Carb Problem?

IIRC the 3M "pads" were actually invented by Philips (Petroleum) in the very early 60's, and designed as road underlayment to ensure drainage.

But the modern ones from 3M are actually color coded, each color is a different hardness and 3M will gladly tell you which is which, for whatever trade you are buying them. Kitchen scrounge pads, green versus blue. Janitorial buffing machines & automotive products, usually red/white/blue. IIRC the white ones were the ones that were softest in that set.

In the US, orangewood "pusher" sticks for cuticle manicures are probably the softest "dowel" material. Never seen them in the hardware store though.
