If this thing runs any better it's going to be blowing past 30 on the flat. It almost does that now.
Hold the bus. When I took the float bowl off it looked it looked like this. The jet holder wasn't even screwed into the carb body. When I looked on the jet to see what size it is, there's nothing. It must be so faint I can see the marking.

When I tried to screw the jet holder into the carb it wouldn't thread in till I chased the hole with a tap. I put it back together and now I guess I need to check the plugs again before getting crazy with the drill press.
