Thanks Mark. I just might try that. Still haven't figured out how the primary side works, but your right - maybe would be interesting to try an idle jet in that location. The shut-off solinoid is to keep the car from run-on, but if it is tuned correctly that should not be a problem. I almost might just try adjusting the float level also, even though I doubt that is the problem, but I'm not saying that I am the expert. I'll try anything! Sheech.

Merry Christmas to all, especially '02 owners!

Frank (awakend by a 350 acre fire at 4am yesterday. 76 degrees today. Where is the rain when we need it in So. California? Can we share winter with some of you guys back east? Not trade, just share a little.)

: If not float level, you may have a stuck or bad idle shutoff solenoid. There is a idle circut on both bores, however the secondary idle jet is more involved with transition. Idle mixture is controled by the screw adjustment, but the primary idle jet (where your idle shutoff solenoid is) comes into play during light throttle conditions. I think you may have a blockage through the idle jet on the primary bore, where that solenoid is. I would junk the shutoff solenoid and replace with a idle jet and holder like you have on the secondary bore.

: My 02 cents worth.
: Merry Christmas
