Re: Engine bogs at higher RPM
I put the timing tape on the balancer and did a preliminary test without the analyzer hooked up, so I was guessing at the RPM. With the engine revved up to what felt like around 3k, the timing advanced to about 26 degrees, which seems to low, so tomorrow I'm going to hook up the analyzer at the same time so I can be sure I'm at 3k RPM and then advance the timing to 34 degrees.
I also looked carefully at the carburetor and realized that the choke is opening all the way but I'm not sure if all the other mechanical pieces are operating as they should. In fact, I thought for a minute that one piece (cog) was preventing the secondaries from opening, but I warmed up the motor, wired the choke wide open and went for a drive and no luck, it still stalls.
I have the fittings to do the fuel pump test but I need to look up how long to keep the motor turning over and how much fuel to expect to be delivered in that time.
