    <font face="Arial" size="4">I hate to be a pest but you guys helped me a lot. Can someone give me a good procedure for setting the timing. I put a timing light on and when I set the dist. for 9/16 BTC it runs very poorly, it runs better when set 30 to 40 degrees BTC. Also how to set that knurled screw. I hate to take it to a mechanic that is 40 miles away.</font>

    <font face="Arial" size="4">re: Mikes problem with carbon on plugs, My plugs were black too. I found a adjustment screw under thecontrol linkage,</font><font face="Arial" size="4">I think it is the idle adj. screw, I turned it in a bit and the plugs look better. I also took the carb apart and bent the spring above the float a little bit and it seems to have stoped the dripping after shut off. </font>
