AVONBAR

Maybe you're squeezing all you can out of a 998, or going large-bore with a 1380 (or even larger!) - either way, let us know all about it here!

yes, still running the engine in.

Took the weber off today, replaced the HIF44....still need to sort the mixtures out, but have a new, richer needle in now, so hopefully that will fix it leaning out.

So going to finish the running in with the SU then go to a rolling road and fit the weber. Well that is the plan, we will see if it comes to fruition !! :)

Given where you are located in the country why not go along to DEWS sometime and have a chat there, or indeed speak to Adrian Dodds who gave a superb talk at the MOC Pitch last year at Stoneleigh on tuning the A Series

thanks Kelvink, will do

I can report that the SU is running ok, and the richer needle seems to have cured the leaning out problem under load.

Meanwhile, going to get the weber surveyed, as I think that there is a problem with one of the barrels.

Maybe it's possible to fit a Lambda probe kit. Almost all new exhausts have plugs you can take out and install a Lambda probe in. With a dial in the cockpit you can see how the engine is running. Saves a lot of guessing. I paid around 200 euro for my kit and made it possible grinding a needle specific for my engine.
