Did a bit of tightening up, & after watching the AGC video on fooling with air filters, carbs, etc. I gave the ol' soldier a larger jet. Then I proceeded to head for the outskirts of town, where I ran out of fuel. I am going to have to get into the habit of pulling the cap on that teeny-weeny tank BEFORE I leave the house.
This is especially true when I'm doing things that may affect fuel consumption.
