You learned the same way I did. I'm barely a shadetree mechanic but I know my way around a car and was always around my dad and in his shop when he raced stock cars for 25 years. Dad's are the best teachers. I owe you at least a case of beer if not a keg by the end of this thing!
So, been doing some thinking, which is always dangerous for me. I think I am going to hold off on all the "mods" until this winter, that includes, the return line, the T screws, maybe primer and accelerator delete. I wan to come back and paint everything in the winter too. My goal is to have both of these skis back together and broken in before Labor Day weekend.
Does the low speed jet have a number on it anywhere? Can I pop out to see the underside of it? Just want to make sure I am set 150 and 90 before moving forward. The 1.5 N&S was pretty nasty when I got it out. You'll have to excuse my ignorance when it comes to carbs, first time tearing one down. What would be affected moving to the new 1.2 N&S ? Looks like I might be delayed as I cannot locate the carb screw around Nashville so it will need to be ordered.
