Well, I took my rig over to a mechanic buddy of mines place to have him check it out. Everything I did was perfect as far as tuning goes. But it was still running fat and loading up at idle.
He did a check on the cylinders and found not one, but TWO exhaust valves are burnt.
I have another 1.6 head I am going to take to the machine shop this week and have them rebuild. I knew I should have at least pulled the head before I installed this motor, but it seemed to run ok in the Sidekick it came out of. My bud says the bottom end seems fine, so a valve job should be all I need.
Even though it is running sick, he was impressed with the power and response of the 1.6 with 4 carbs. He also has a Sami and plans on building a manifold for 2 Harley carbs.
Anyone know how much meat can be taken off the head for more compression? Jeremy told me these carbs really love compression.
