    Re: Remflex - should I add a shim as well?

    Do not use a shim as it provides an area for leakage. The Remflex will seal the manifold. You MUST support the manifold or the engine vibration will vibrate the manifold and cause a leak.

  11. Re: How firmly should Weber Idle jets be seated?

    Jeff ... The best description for the jets is "firm". Not "tight" and not "loose". They just need to seal but if they leak it is not a big deal. Just do not screw up the threads.

    Re: Weber - Linkage angle

    Jack .... I just buy 1/8 rod from Lowes and then I cut and thread the rod. I use two right handed threaded ends as I don't have a left handed die.

    Re: Differing advice on Weber settings

    The idle mixture screws are adjusted to the "correct air-fuel" mixture. Start with all idle mixture screws at the same opening (1`/2 turn or so). With the engine idling, open each screw 1/4 turn. ...
