[DMCForum] Re: More B28E/F

"Big Hairy Muff" (did I do that correctly Martin?)

If your engine is backfiring, especially cold, you've got bigger
problems than the CPR:
- Improper valve lash
- Worn valves
- Sagging or skipped timing chain
- Improper ignition time

Series 004 and 029 CPR were standard F series until 1980. Series 038
has virtually same parameters:
- Full closed temp: 156 degrees (004 and 029) versus 160 degrees (038)
- Full closed pressure: 49-53 PSI (004 and 029) versus 49-53 PSI (038)
Does start ~0 PSI versus ~11 PSI (004) and ~6 PSI (029), but a rich
mixture is LESS volatile than a lean one...

Series 004 has no full throttle enrichment of course, but you claim
that has no real effect anyway (I disagree -- noticed significant
improvement when I connected mine).

For the curious, Series 066 starts ~16 PSI, closes at just 106
degrees. Final pressure is same however.

Louie Golden is running my spare Series 038 CPR with good results on
an otherwise stock engine (CIS out of service).
