Re: Carb balancing.
- Hi Greg.
Yes, it is the 92 900. I must admit that I didn't strip the carbs apart from removing the float bowls to check the float heights. Where is the small o ring positioned, that you mentioned? Is that something I can check with the carbs in situ or do they have to come out again?

Some good help here. I have a problem, though.
When sync'ing I cannot get vacuum anywhere near 152mmHg. The best I can get is around 300mmHg! That is to much vacuum - clogged air filter perhaps? Also she's stood over the winter and now pops on idle and over-run which would suggest it's lean which contradicts a clogged filter. Did a 300 mile run last weekend and got 47mpg - suggesting she's running very lean.
