    Hoping someone can help me locate two articles

    Gentlemen
    I am looking for two ehpful articles that were published in Enthusiast News Letter, but I don't know when or by whom
    The two articles I seek are:
    • Progressive Hole Method for Syncronising Carburettors


    and
    • Using smoke to detect induction vacuum leaks.


    Any help would be greatly apprecaited.
    Many thanks
    Jeff

    Jeff,

    I've looked, and I can't find the old document. And I can't remember which issue it was in.

    The holes are really very simple. Just adjust one carb linkage until it lines up with the other. As I've said, it appears that an incandescent flash light works better than fluorescent or LED lights to view the brass butterfly in the holes.

    Jeff, at the bottom of the tech section, there are indexes for the newsletter articles. I believe this may be the one you are looking for on the smoke test:

    I did not find the one on the Weber carbs. I wonder if it was on the forum, or maybe a newsletter tech tip that is not listed separately. I am not a Weber guy, but I would second what Jim has said. All the points you are looking for are starting points, but regardless where you start, you need to fine tune them in, including the synchronizing.

    Also, if you are not a member, maybe you could join. You will get the newsletter and support the group.
