The pull with a single and C5 are impressive aren't they!? Amazed me really how nice the low rpm torque is especially.

Sounds great Brian. Falling off in higher gears you might want to verify the choke is in fact wide open when fully warmed.

The choke on 34 Pict 3 is electric, and this one is non-operational. I have the kit to convert it to manual, but for now, I don't need it, so I am going to keep it as is... It is completely open.

I'm glad to hear you're making progress, Brian. I felt kinda bad when you drilled to 140 like I suggested and it didn't work for you.

It sounds like I need to investigate this c5 business...

Nothing for you to worry about. It was actually closer to 150 because I didn't have the right size drill bit for a 140, so I knew it when I was drilling it that I might be over doing it, but I did it anyway. Sometimes you have to run before you walk...

I have a 130, 135, 140, and 145 jet in the mail, so I am sure I will get this right yet.

I am having my ass handed to me by my rear brake caliper... Time to order some new parts. Starting with a rebuild kit for the MC, and SS brake line, and a rebuild kit for the caliper. I am sure the parts guy is going to scratch his head when I start asking for 1981 and 1984 parts.
