Here's something that's been bugging me for a while. I've got a '78 Maxi, 15mm carb, 80 jet, high flow air filter. Have a biturbo so my low end isn't what it was. The jet is correct, with an 82 I had a slighly moist plug, with a 78 there was almost no brown on the plug at all. 80 looks pretty good.
When I start off the line the acceleration is better if the choke is enganged. Is this normal? It sort of seems reasonable, that I'm giving the engine a burst of air, so it's better if there's a slightly richer mix in there to begin with.
If I don't have the choke engaged, it seems to bog down a little, but then picks up as I get moving. With choke on, no bogging. If this isn't normal, anyone have ideas.
