In regards to this post.

Brand new carb, not rebuilt by me (so I take the me screwing up factor out of it), and adjusted properly, and I'm still getting 12.5 around town. I'm not positive I have the idle mix set right, but if anything I have it idling on the lean side.

  • Brakes are not dragging
  • Fuel system is clean
  • Timing is unknown, but unchanged for who knows how long
  • Doesn't ping, or backfire (some burble and pop, but no backfire)

At this point, I'm ready to attribute it to a combo of sea level, lead foot, crappy gas, and all city driving. I really don't know what else it could be. I had the cat off not that long ago, and it didn't look clogged. You could barely see light through it, but the honeycomb was clean and free of deposits.

I do have a long freeway trip coming up soon, so we'll see what happens then.
