Ok, I turned it down another 1/2 turn from this morning, and it felt like a Vanagon diesel 
going up my street! Back in 1/4 and it was much better, with no smoke at full throttle in 
1st & 2nd. In a tad more, and I saw smoke again. Out a smidgen, and same power, but 
no smoke... bingo! 
I never went beyond 2nd gear, but it felt ok, so I'll leave it for a while and see if the wife 
notices... ;-)
