Angry Check the STUPID stuff first!

XS Friends,
These HITACHI carbs have been kicking my butt. I checked everything! 10X!

Well seems the STUPID stuff was the cause. Dropped a port cap and when I went hunting for it I found this.

Nothing wrong with the HITACHI carbs now..... Perfectly adjusted and the machine runs absolutely great.

Checked and re-checked: Valves, Compression, Cam Timing, Timing, Carb cleanliness, fuel flow, butterfly valves, every %#$^@* thing only to find this stupid deal all by accident..

Running good now!!!
