Lars-rebuilt Qjet

Lars-rebuilt over 15 years ago and still going strong. Other than 'touching' the carb when I may remove it to work on the top-end, the carb hasn't required any adjustment since.

Agree. We need more info about the carb system upgrade. Pictures too. Close-ups of the carb opening, linkage position at idle, half and full throttle (engine off).

It was so bad that the WD40 that had leaked past the valve was pushed BACK around the intake valve by the compressed air and out of the intake port (I had removed the intake for the test).

It looks like both the Tach and Batt wires got smoked all of the way to the coil. There has to be a short somewhere in the harness (the 3-wire connector at distributor).

How does the tach...
