    RE: just broke my car inand have some questions

    1. how do you see smoke coming out of the carb, you do have the air filter on when its running right?

    2. the engine should start on a couple of pulls, how do you know your not running lean, a smoking engine (except from the exhaust) usually means a hot engine.

    3. the faster the engine turns is what effects how the engine shifts, you have to make sure the engine is broke in before you can really get the rpm high enough for it to shift, you can hear it when it shifts.

    rich is better than lean, you can lean it a little for better performance as long as you have a trail of smoke coming out of the exhaust and your not overheating.
