Lots of questions… that’s good.
For setting the short rod I like the method where when everything is warmed up, in running condition, I put a gloved hand over and individual throttle inlet and see if the glove gets sucked against the opening. Repeat for each opening. There should be none, or extremely ever so slightly just a tiny bit.
I’ve tried the glove trick, but never been able to get to the point of ZERO suction — it ALWAYS gets sucked in. Using a piece of card stock, I can reach the point of no suction and figured that was good enough. Am I kidding myself…?
