Adjusting carb linkage
Posted by: American Mel ()

I know that this was talked about just recently, but I have not been able to find it.
Yes Matt, I did (multiple) searches.
The stickies have synchronizing the carbs, but I am not finding the carb linkage adjustment directions.
Yes, I do know how to do it, but someone was asking me how to do it, and the directions that were given in the recent post are much better than I could give at this moment in time. (Bad Weeksad smiley , not thinking straight.)

That is funny, cause I could not find any adjusting instructions that were as complete and as thorough as the ones that were posted in a thread just recently.
Oh well, I am heading to bed now.
Night.

You disconnect the throttle rod coming from the fire wall, adjust the drivers side down rod to the passenger side down rod to where both carbs fully close, as in disconnect the adjustable rod on the drivers side and set your idle on both sides, you should use a unisyn carb balance tool,but if you do not have one you can get them close without, set your idle screws to where you have a good smooth idle, once that's done adjust the drivers side down rod by spinning the rod until it lines up with the hole in the cross shaft at idle making sure that both carbs are now resting on the idle screws, attach the rod with the clip, now your carbs should be close to the same and have a even idle, now adjust the the throttle rod swivel from the fire wall to line up with the hole in the cross shaft with no tension, now it should work fine>

Thank-you Wagon Master!
Yes, that is the one.
I don't know why I could not find it.
My mind is kinda fuzzy and distracted right now though.
I have been losing friends right and left lately.
I have lost 17 friends over the last 14 to 16 months.
I just got back from a week away, and found out that my Boss/Friend died while I was out of town.
Thank-you for the help!
