    Interesting. Any more updates?


    I had the TPS dead center when I adjusted it the first time. I must have knocked it about slightly when I tore it back apart to replace the Coolant Tube seal. Even still, mine was way off when I got Clyde, and he ran fine, so I'm guess it didn't have much affect on the idle after you readjusted it?

    The TBs were also synced, albeit with a homemade vacuum gauge. Same setup I synced mine with. I was a bit sloppy with it though, so certainly worth double checking with a proper gauge if you've got one.

    As far as the TBs go, the only thing I can even remotely think of that could be wrong is that maybe I swapped the wrong size jets. For example, the .08 jet may be where the .05 jet should be. I was pretty careful though, so it's a long shot. I can't think of anything else it could be. You're more than welcome to tear the TBs back apart if you want, but likely a waste of time. Those things were so crudded up when I took them apart.... I'm not even sure how fuel was getting through them.

    As far as the exhaust leak goes... you're missing the donut seal from the down tube. I mentioned this the day you picked it up. Previous owner had the entire exhaust system loose in order to bolt on the right canister (due to the twisted sub frame). When I readjusted the pipes the donut seal came out in pieces. Cheap fix.



    NOTE: I don't have phone or internet anymore, but I will still monitor this when I can.

    Well... I'm guessing Bob is sitting somewhere collecting cob webs.
