    OK, I haven't always been this smart, nor this good looking (ladies, line forms to the right!) but . . . .

    I set myself (the car actually) on fire last winter - I've got no room to talk. This is from another list - the guy is just so nice and always polite. He'll never be on the F1 pit crew . . .

    After one year in the shop my engine has roared back to life . The <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    only problem now is when you stand behind her ,she smells like fuel and the <o:p></o:p>

    I timed the engine to the mark on the wheel . She is running very rich . <o:p></o:p>
    No adjustments were made to the carb since it was in the shop . <o:p></o:p>

    Which way is lean when you turn the distributor . Is lean when you hear the <o:p></o:p>

    lean is in the carb not the distributor, now timing can effect how she runs and cause some issues. But I'd really make friends with someone that can walk you through timing it then tuning the carb.

    what size motor and what size carb? zman is correct: "I'd really make friends with someone that can walk you through timing it then tuning the carb" or if you have to pay a little. I bet your oil is going from clean to black really fast as well. Too much fuel can screw up an engine. good luck.
