I see said the blind man. I guess a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then as well. I'm happy with the 140 main jets. I went back to the 50f8 idle jets after trying the 55s. It just idles...

If the signal change is linear then you could enter the hot rod version of the cosmological constant and multiply that by the rpm and get the actual rpm. That is assuming the tach or that channel...

You are probably right. The DCO Webers did not have bearings in the butterfly shafts just bushings which wore down. I always suspected I had air being sucked in past the shafts which made setting...

Has the car ever been hit on that side. Look for creased sheetmetal around bumper mount bracket. How is the camber? If it's OK and has stock upper control arms that is good. If it's OK and it has...

I've had F16s in the whole time. Even the idle screws can make a difference at WOT. At least when I had them screwed in to far on my Giulietta Veloce it barked REALLY loud out the intake at WOT...

I have 50f8 idle jets in there now and will try 55f8s after the 190ACs tomorrow. We'll see and yes just about everything is a compromise.

Changing to the 195 AC brought it down (richer)
Thanks Ed, I had to go back and edit, I thought I had F15s but had F16s so I changed from 200 AC to 195 AC I have 190s and will try those...

I was half expecting to see a similar dip in the four thousands on mine. It is as I could tell just from looking at the gauge trending somewhat lean. Interesting that it's 12.67 at 59-6000 rpm and...

Is it a Spica injected or Weber converted? If Spica the link above is what you need. Perfect time to replace not only the rear fuel filter but the front one as well.

I just talked to the Innovate guy and to log RPM as well I'd need what they call the SS-4. So it goes MTX-L (afr) to SS-4, to Pocket logger. With the SSI I have 3 more data channels to use for...

Probably only in the Coupe with the Innovate. I doubt the Pocket Logger would have the same 4 pin connectors as the Zt2. If it did then the data would have to be in a format the Zt2 would...

I thought Alfas were nimble? :)
I take it you are trying to lean out a specific rpm range? And are you using a dremmel to drill the holes? Maybe I'm getting something wrong but seeings how the F16...

Good information Ed, Thanks and I'm sure others do to. My mid range and low AFRs are good. It would really be good if I could log my data like you do and have a curve to look at but that would the...

The F16s look promising. It's misting with light rain and all the oil has come up out of the pavement which makes it exciting. The tires break loose in 3rd when the torque hits and 4th is pretty...

I don't have a way to record except to video the AFRs with an electronic tach in the frame. I do have a set of F16s in addition to the F15s. The F16 has fewer holes and only at the low end which...

Since I ran current straight from the battery via a relay to the AFR and it has cooled off considerably my
AFR readings are different. Great everywhere except in 3rd and 4th @WOT. Beginning...

If mine has it I haven't noticed. I do like the Tach and Speedo being the same shape and in the same locations as they are on my GTV. There is a certain continuity I can appreciate.

Well as usual I spoke too soon. I took the dist out and did the comparison the same way instead of what I did earlier using the rotor to move the shaft while the other has the dist out. Now both...

Time to contact Gordon. I pulled the dist cap off and there is massive play in the shaft. It's a 123 BT so there is no mechanical advance to worry about and the rotor can be rotated back and forth...
