I need to talk to someone who really knows what they are doing when tuning Dellorto PHBG carbs.
I am running 21 phbg, 96 jet (running a little rich). The needle is a W9 with the clip on second from top notch.
This setup was perfect up until I changed the pipe and removed the head gasket.
I have 2 problems.
1. If I accelerate just a hair past 1/8th throttle, it bogs and I have no take off. If I move the throttle back down a little bit it picks right back up and I have to wait for it to accelerate to 10 mph before I can give it anymore juice. I believe the fix for that would be dropping down the needle a notch to restrict fuel flow a bit more. But, here is my other problem:
2. When I am past 1/4th throttle, I am having problems with the fuel cutting off too quickly when I let off the throttle. This would be fixed by changing to a needle with a different taper, something higher than a W9.
So if I changed out needles, would I still move it down a notch? Do I need to switch out needles? I would like to get someones skilled opinion. I want to make sure I am understanding everything correctly.
