Looking for information on the latest Gas Analyzers out there.
Posted by: OttawaCorvairGuy ()

The last time I use a gas analyzer they were 2 or 4 gas machines on a stand or part of the bigger tune up machines.

I've been away from the seen too long. What is out there now that will do the following - for Carb and NO computer vehicles only?

What I'm hoping to find is something that can be used for 1. IDLE testing and adjusting and 2. To check how rich or lean the high speed jet is while driving.

Is there anything that has its own screen or uses a Laptop that will do both?

Thank you,

Tony... today you just use a common wide band O2 sensor and gauge.

All over ebay..

A wideband O2 sensor, an AFR meter (lots out there), some cabling, and one of these (available from Amazon and others). (Link to Amazon [www.amazon.com])

Does it provide you with CO and HC readings?

Tony.. what do you want?

A true gas analyzer or a Air Fuel Meter?

I'm generally recommend investing in an O2 wideband.

Matt, I dislike coffee (kinda like some of your replies). Grin
But I have come to respect you over the years and we have had some good talks (PMs and phone) during the same time frame.

IF I have to buy something - why not buy equipment that can offer more info to help do more things.

#1 I first want to be able to set the idle to 1.0 to 1.1 for the CO reading. Just lean enough - but not to lean to cause problems.

If at all possible it would be nice to know if/when I have any issues - what the HC reading is to help with that. It is what I'm use to using. As I have not kept up on the latest equipment, how it works, and what all it offers - I'm asking for help here.

#2 If there is some new kind of equipment that I don't know about. I would also like to be able to see the readings at speeds. This would be helpful to know what is the best size jet to use. And to make sure It's not too lean. Which is not good for an air cooled engine. But not too rich to be wasting fuel too,. I understand reading the sparkplugs helps with this. However, if I'm already having to buy equipment to set my idle - and there is something that will also check readings while driving will make it easier.


BTW - For those who are interested.

My plan is to install test ports on my single exhaust. One for each bank.
This way I can check each Carb at idle and speeds and not just what comes out the one tailpipe.
It will also be helpful to know which carb or bank has an issue when one falls on its face.

Been off doing some research and found this 6 page article, that I thought I share for the heck of it.
Some might find this interesting.

Thank you Matt.

All this reading today is taking a toll on the old eyeballs. Grin
I still have to find out what reading I want to see when using a wideband O2 compared to the 1.0 to 1.1 that I'm use to seeing on the CO meter of a gas analyzer at idle.
