Any one have these handy? For some reason I can't find them in my shop manual. All 3 cyl are 115 psi.

Rebuilt the carbs today and ran several other test as I was having some issues. Carbs wre still factory with a lot of hours ofn them. Checked the reed valves abd they looked good as well. It's running great in the yard now with the muffs on so I just need to test it out with some load on the lake.

115lbs is a good reading, but it's more important they are all at same PSI with 10% max difference in between.

There were all within 1 lb of each other which I was happy with. Hit the lake and after a bit of fine tuning it's running like it used to 5 years ago.

Life is good again. smile

Great to hear Borch.

We need to hit Mille Lacs as soon as I get home. I should have my leadcore set up ready by then.

Had a great trip. I'm going to try to post a few pics in there when I get a chance.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
