[DMCForum] Re: My first tune up: Making progress, not quite there yet



OK, the Lambda system is working now. I dialed it in to an average
reading of 45 on my dwell meter - it swings from ~35 to ~55 give or
take.

Problem: I had to dial the co even leaner than it already was to get
the lambda system right. This was surprising to me, as I'd thought the
"glug glug" noise was due to a lean condition and that proper
operation would be found at a richer setting. Now, the "glug glug" is
slightly worse than it was.

Now what?! I'm going to take a break for awhile... :)
