So after much research or attempted research I have worked out most kinks but am still having a few issues.
When attempting WOT from idle it bogs out completely and shuts down. I can smell that it is too rich and from what I have read it sounds like its either too large of a pilot jet or the squirter action is injecting too much fuel. Will rev out well, but a quick wrap of the throttle to attempt WOT will kill it. Just not sure where to go with it. Should I also ry the o-ring mod first? I have read and understand that mod but looking at it and the functioning of the rocker it doesn't appear to separate where the o-ring would be needed. Ideas with any of this???
Im not 100% certain that the current jetting is correct. But with all the info I gathered this is what I decided to run.
3x3, Full Hindle exhaust, K&N
6000ft - 8000ft, (Im also at the base of Pikes Peak and wouldn't mind having a jet setup to run that. That setting would be 8000ft - 14000ft)
Current carb setup-
main jet - 152
main air jet - 200
leak jet - 80
pilot jet - 45
needle - 3rd clip from top
fuel screw - 2 1/4 turns
note- most of these numbers are recommendations from a few different FCR setup threads I have read.
I did take it for a quick test drive and it performed well, but at some point it just started dying between closed, 1/4 and 1/2 throttle. No sputter, hickup or anything like that. But it acted like it wasn't getting any fuel. Then it got to the point where it wouldn't even start at all. I'm not sure if it was because I was running it with the tank in the reserve position or not. I have the OEM gas tank petcock with the vacuum port but I haven't sourced the adapter that plugs into the bolt in the intake manifold. But I would think it would still run fine even set on reserve.
Im pretty new to toying with carbs, but I understand the logistics of it. Just need a gentle nudge in the proper direction to get my gears turning. For now, I am stumped.
