Re: [DML] c02

Since it was my web site you used I'll answer your question. I found that
the dwell meter method is a pretty good estimate of the proper setting. If
you make it richer a hair and it runs better then your in good shape. There
is a fine line of adjustment here and you may have to make more adjustments
as you drive the car but each should be less than an tenth of a turn and no
more. Always make sure the car is completely warmed up and the cooling fans
have cycled at least once before making any changes. I found a lean setting
gives me more power at takeoff but a richer setting makes the engine idle
smoother and start better.
