Good on you Tim, won't be long now.

One point worth mentioning though, have your carbs balanced when you get the mixtures set up. This would give you a good starting point on the road to regular maintenance.

not that realy helps you....
Used to be standard practice on older Soozooks to drill the tell tale out. They block up with the slightest bit of crap.
