7045281 RICH IDLE / LEAN WOT
« on: July 10, 2024, 05:33:35 PM »
Im having 2 issues with my QJET (REBUILT AS BELOW)
1st problem is I can't lean idle out enough, stinks of fuel, people complain cover their noses etc. Black sooty tail pipes and spark plugs at idle, NOT wet at all, no nozzle drip.
Not running on transition slot, showing under 0.010" exposed. 

2nd problem seems to lean out at WOT. (haven't ruled out mechanical fuel pump though)

Just thought Id run the specs past you guys and see if there's anything that might raise a red flag
