Re: Weber tuning Ka stuff

My experience with racing and with my FJ20 is that they do like to run on the rich side. Definitely play with the color tune, it's pretty cool but it will make you get into your jet collection.

Re: Mikuni Rebuild Schedule?

Thanks Duke, I have a crank fire Electromotive ignition, and unless it's the plug wires (haven't replaced those in about 10 years) I don't know what else it could be. The way it ultimately cleared itself, lead me to think it was fuel.....that or an exhaust obstruction which given the number of critt...

LOL you guys are killing me. Super anti on the anti sway bar.. I got it fellas thanks for chiming in.
Never ran them either, all the 510 guys in my vintage race group thought I was crazy but I could always keep up, just balance the car, and the front and rear shock and spring rates.
