[DMCForum] Re: Continued Series 038 CPR Versus Series 066 CPR

Series 038 CPR takes *MUCH* longer to warm up than Series 066,
somewhere in the neighborhood of 160 degrees versus little over 100.
Allows you to run rich more than 50% longer.

Re: fuel starvation -- I'm talking about 1% CO2, not final control
pressure (is the same between two CPR's BTW). That's why 066 series
needs greater enrichment at vacuum drop: fuel mixture is too lean to
begin with.

The crime Lambda and 066 CPR are partners in is US Government mandates.
Both appeared at same time (1979-80). Previous F Series imports (B27F)
were non-Lambda with CPR's virtually identical to Series 038. I never
meant to imply the CPR and frequency valve work together (duh).

I disagree with your contention that a lean burn extends engine life.
Lean mixtures burn much hotter than rich ones. Increase overall engine
temp dramatically. Considering our little engines are not only made
almost exclusively of aluminum, but are basically glued together (more
gaskets than a traditional block, and whose idea were all the silly O
rings), this is not good.

Point of order: "backfires" occur through the intake (ever see flames
shoot out of a carburetor?). I think you're talking about exhaust
explosions/muffler farts/tailpipe pops/etc, which usually aren't a
problem once you get rid of catalytic converters (ever felt how much
cooler the exhaust stream is from a non-converter equipped engine?).

Is our tractor pull still scheduled for Pigeon Forge? If my PRV carb
conversion isn't ready in time I'm going in one of the Lincolns...
