Gavrik Peterson ----- you are one lucky son of a gun. ----Loren is close by and Hagar
is only an Email or a phonecall away.
Let me tell the rest of this group that I have seen and listened to that ---beautiful 1.6L NA
I regret now that I never got to drive it. Anyway Gavrik is a perfectionist and one of the better
analytical minds in the North West. ----Besides that he is the only one I met that actually set
foot in the worlds biggest Aircraft. I saw it perform --BUT no way could I get inside.
Injectors must be done first and then TUNING. ---- Phone me any time 24/7 I want to see you
have a lot of service out of that engine.
You have a spare pump so get your tools ready. --- In your case I would take a close look at "DYNAMIC"
injection timing mechanism. Get hold of a probe for using a Strobe Timing light. ---that works good.
But remember the cold start knob ? ----measure the pull at idle and with engine off, and compare.
Bunny Bondo ? Engine off = 20 lbs idling ? 2.0 lbs. ----the ratio indicates state of pump.
I use a fish scale --those little handy springscales from the tackle box.
If push comes to show ?---shov ? I will mail you an adaptor to measure pump pressure.
On your pump it should be about 3.0 bar at idle.
Meanwhile advance pump a pencil line -- and cut fueling screw back a tad.
Are you using lubricant in your fuel for the pump ? . Bondo baby is still doing 78 miles on a gallon
imp after 20 years ? EH so you can do it ---I am sure of that . Go for at least 50 miles on a gallon US.
