  3. Force applied by Spica TA?

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    I was looking over the design of the TA mechanism on the Spica. I don't have one, as I'm running webers, but I was curious if anyone had ever measured the amount of force that the TA applies to the Spica pump?

    Hi and thanks in advance! My 1990 Spider Veloce was broken into a few weeks ago. Since then any time I initiate any use of power (opening a door, touching the brake) the flashers go off --including the dash lights --for about 20-25 blinks. If I don't do anything else it all shuts off so it's...
