Thanks guys, believe it or not this pile of metal has alot of my blood,sweat and fears in it. Wink

Got the bottom cage installed, still not happy with the mounting of it, but for now it stays. But got the BOV installed, new fuel pressure gauge still have to see what jets I am running and hook up the LM-1





Don't know if you have noticed the steering box, not to many like it. Want something tough, drives like it has power steering well this is the ticket. This is a steering box out of a 94 full size cheby blazer. little work on the pitman arm and some mounting fab and good to go. I have bounced it off trees, T-boned it in the sand which destroyed the front end and it still cycles smoothly. Only drawback it is heavy but worth it.

I have hooked up the LM-1 it reads that I am running lean, though smells like rich, but anyway does anybody know what jets are available or just what numbers there are for the del 45 carb? I am ignorant as all get out on this, not afraid to admit.


Right now my idles are 65 and the mains are marked 1.45 if that helps any.

Larger # equals more fuel.

Well just ordered Jet gauge and Jet Reamers, have been collecting thanks to TuboManxManiac also gave me a Dellorto book so back to school, ordered a bunch of jets to work with so here in a couple weeks we should be running stronger then ever. Man I can't wait. It is one thing doing it but another understanding why.

Posting this over here, maybe help somebody I know it has helped me and man have I learned alot with more still to go.

First thing first, I have been driving with dizzy unlocked so today I locked it at 24° took it for a spin, well decrease in power, still builds boost but not impressed with the lock

Second, hooked up the LM-1 recorded at idle, ok I admit it I am an idiot on this stuff, I know it is rich but what am I looking at? Actually is was waaaay lean, not good at all. ran great but would kill the engine in time.



So idle is rich, first should I start with the idle mixture screw? Will this also help the performance with the locked dizzy?

Here is a link to the thread. Like I said I had screwed it up by revving it, thought that would help me with the upper but yea boost is different.

www.innovatemotorsport...#post48858
edit: 1914 t3/4 turbo,Single Del 45 with 32 mm chokes 1.45 mains, 180 Air correction jet and 65 idle

This is my frustration and confusion.

I smells and burning eyes like rich, exhaust has black soot but if that is saying lean then so be it.

My idles are 65's the main has 1.45 stamped in it . What else do I need to check. I was messing with the idle mixture screw and got it to 27.6 but no lower, 14.7 is the magic number correct?

Actually it is 12-13.5 for air cooled you want it richer vice lean

Started off with idle jets at 55 Main jet 145 Needle valve 2.25

First changed to Idle 58 Main 160 needle 2.50 AFR was 22.7 so I upped the idle to 70 and idle speed went from 1k to 3 k and stayed there till I backed off the idle screw. Next I tried a 70 jet for idle and AFR went to 15.6 then I put in a 75 idle jet and it fluctuates but stays in the 13-low 14 range.



The low ones are where I revved it up it would go down to 10 or so. What do you think, idle and rev is alot,lot better, but what is your opinions?
Thanks for the help so far guys.

I am getting closer

Ok I switched in the idles to 80 and the first blip of the throttle is a very very slight hesitation, the ones after are all right there. Sounds great response is well have not seen that, starting it up is not a massive pumping of the go pedal, it is coming around. Me likes Very Happy Here is the thread to the file. www.innovatemotorsport...#post48867

After revving it does settle right down, no jumping in rpms either. We are getting closer guys, man I really do appreciate your help.

And TurboManx, yes am reading the book, that is probably one good reason I still have hair. Thanks, really!

If anybody needs help with what is here ask, I can hit boost which really sucks the air in so fuel has to be dumped in to equalize it, now I know not just think I have got it. Burning holes in cylinders gets expensive and time consuming.

I am making a mount for the camcorder, obviously this is not going to work, the camcorder shut down cause it was to bouncy. She is running pretty good though. Anybody else have a camcorder mount they want to show off?

Got rid of the stock (beefed) spindles and running some fodrills now, very happy with them, beat the snot out of them and they keep coming back for more. After looking at Hedrock rack Embarassed Laughing have been trying to figure one out for mine with some where for a spare tire. Confused
