This is a great way for you to learn how to tune an engine. So you know that 3 turns is too lean, and 6.5 is too rich, so start leaning in small increments. Start the engine, let it warm up, then turn HSN in about 1/4 turn, run it some more, see how it feels, if its not fast with snappy throttle response, keep turning it in, in 1/8 increments until it runs great. You may also need to adjust your LSN as well, the more you turn it in, the better throttle response you get, but make sure you dont lean it out to much or you will have idle issues, and high speed issues. Keep an eye on the smoke coming from the pipe, always make sure there is a good stream of blueish grey smoke coming from the pipe, with no fuel spitting out at idle, lastly check your engine temps after tuning your engine, try to keep it at or under 250 degrees. the more you learn the les help you will need, and if people give you the answers you will not learn. Remember you will never hurt your engine running it rich, but too lean, and you will be buying new engines alot. Let us know how it turns out
nothing to see here................................
