Geeman Posted May 28, 2015 Report Share Posted May 28, 2015 My '84 Turbo (US spec) has the apparent usual symptoms of stumbling on light acceleration, but fine on full throttle. I've searched and read the forum(s) etc. bought the Hammill book and the 4 tube manometer. I've rebuilt and set up twin and triple SU carbs on other cars, no problem. This past weekend I thought I would at least try and balance the carbs. Not much luck, they are all over the place and I couldn't get them very close. The car does however, seem just a bit better. I want to check the floats and make sure the jets are clean/clear and I am thinking I should just reset the carbs and start from scratch, balance and mixture. I bought the car from California where emissions are a pain for older cars and maybe it was set up just to pass the emissions and not optiminally. It still has the emissions equipment like air/smog pump on it etc. I know to the UK owners this is unknown territory :-) Its definitely been tinkered with in the past as the tamperproof caps are gone and the tops of the brass bypass (?) screws are a bit gnarly. So, armed with the tools and a modicum of mechanical intelligence, what could possibly go wrong? How long would you estimate to get a basic set up tuned? There is a local rolling road/dyno place that I can take it to for fine tuning later. There are no emission requirements in my state.
