Re: Balancing twin rotor idle models

John This sounds like a very likely candidate. When the carbs were refurbished the cam plate which the rod is connected to was replaced so it is very possible that the fixing point has changed and hence the idle rod distance.

Re: Balancing twin rotor idle models

JB Latest, I took the carbs off and resealed the air intake connection to the frame. Not sure it improved much I still have an unbalanced tick over. Have not been able to ride due to flat battery, when charged it was heavy rail, so no riding, not that I'm a fine weather rider but I don't like cleani...

Balancing twin rotor idle models

Hi All I'd like a bit of guidance on setting idle and balancing the carbs on my air cooled model. There are two nipples/adaptors to connect a manometer to, however one of the nipples has a cap on it, it looks like someone has adhered it in place. How easy is it to take out the adaptor, will I need t...
