Re: carburettor adjustment

thanks for the reply. i have downloaded it but simply not found the relevant info at first glance (seems to be a phenomenon of the digital area: lack of patience ..).
after browsing through the doc 2nd time i have found info on page 51.
@rob: thanks a lot for the info about the amal carb.

Re: carburettor adjustment

Mine ran rich whatever I did, worse when stationary. Fixed it with a new plastic float and matching needle.

Re: carburettor adjustment

thanks for your feedback. meanwhile i have readjusted the carb according to the data provided by rob. now it runs quite well but does not have a stable idle. when stopping at red lights i have to twist the throttle to keep the eninge running.

Re: carburettor adjustment

Who needs a tickover? Norton owners have a long tradition of blipping the throttle, whether it's to warm up a Manx or to beat a Gold Star away from the lights on a 16H :smile:
