    Well......I guess since it should be a #9 heat range then technically it IS the wrong plug. I'll keep that in mind next tune-up.

    That plug is put there after the casting process.....it's welded in place but much thinner than the rest of the casting. I unhook the water line to the pipe and blow it out with an air inflator pump....

    Well, it's just the water jacket. Grind a V through the crack with a dremel. Rough up the surrounding areas. Use some of that grey epoxy stick stuff that you knead together, and press it in there....

    I commonly see 170-190 psi. Have you tried adjusting the TPS sensor? My wife's FXHO was off a hair. After I set it properly it idles great and no more black plugs.

    The intake air is just above and in front of the battery. You can stick the fogging oil straw in there while it's idling and spray. When the engine starts idling rough and about to die then shut it...

    Fuel blowby is common on ANY boosted engine application. There will be more or less depending upon how much you're in full boost. I like for my boosted customers to just change oil every 20-25 hours,...

    I use chisels as wedges and cut away at it with a razor knife. A 90* prybar will help up inside where the pump bolts on. Just keep working around and prying and cutting until you can pry it off. I...

    You better go ahead and take the e-box lid off for inspection. I commonly find water in them and corroded connectors.

    Thanks steve45.

    ALSO....use a shop vac on the engine side of the carbs to test vacuum slide operation. Just stick it on the carb and open the throttle. You will see the slide rise open. Depending...

    Another fairly common issue I find on these is worn out needles on the slide. This needle controls the fuel flow out of the main jet from just off idle all the way to WOT. Vibration through the years...

    The vacuum slides can wear, and so can the piece they slide IN. If they look like these.......they are worn out and likely sticking as they try to move up and down. This will cause bogging,...

    The problems I usually find with these carbs are usually in the vacuum slide portion. Clean the tiny metal orifice in the outer edge of the diaphragm. Be careful blowing carb cleaner or air through...

    These carbs have a pilot screw adjuster but they are hidden behind plugs. Use a 1/8" drill bit to carefully drill through the plug. Then screw that #8 wood screw in a little and pull the plug out to...
