Need help setting up 34 pict 3

Post by BigOldMac » Fri Jul 13, 2018 2:32 pm

Anyone in the Bedford area able to help me set up an EMPI 34 Pict 3 carb? Just been fitted, was running fine but stalling at idle, then I've tried adjusting it and now it's not doing the job :oops: more than happy to pay for your services, but a bit desperate as I have a long journey for a weekend away planned next week...

I had an empi carb in the past
They have slightly different settings than a normal carb -
I.e it's not just the normal 4 turns out to set
You either have to turn the idle screw right out or right in and start from there , turn to adjust till it's nearly off and 1/4 turn back
(I think )
