You know Max, I can't tell you how many times I've caught that little plastic nut out of place after wondering why it's still running lean! I have it taken care of now...

So I think I have this baby licked! After hearing it pop and stutter with a #45 pilot and seeing it run GREAT with a #50 (but while being able to bottom out the mix screw with no idle change), I settled on a #48. And my needle clip is on the 3rd place setting FWIW.

It runs smooth on the #48, but if I bottom out the mixture, it doesn't die. It runs REALLY rough and sounds like it could eventually die, but it continues to run. I got the screw out to 1 1/2 turns to have a smooth idle, but I still wanted to check and inquire as to if where I'm at sounds about right. Since it took almost exactly 3 turns out to get the idle smooth (still backfired though) on the #45, I figured the #48 HAD to be the trick.

How'd I do?

Read the Stickys. All you will will ever need to know about carbs and setup is in them.

Hi, could you please explain what is meant with "stickys" or provide a link to them... 

I am about to disassemble and clean a FCR -39H Carb and might need to read these...

Many thanks!

They used to be called 'stickies', and now they are labeled as 'pinned' posts, at the top of this forum. 

A good two days worth of reading....

Thanks Krannie. I found the "Pinned"Posts. There are about 10 of them at the Wr/400/426/450 I noticed. Is it about all of these, or also others in other Maps?

Pull the pilot jet, clear the passage above the pilot jet with monofiliment (big fishing line) and spray brake cleaner.

Upon decel, the only part of the carb that is active is the pilot circuit, so that has to be it, or, you have a MASSIVE air leak in the pipe at the header crush washer, or fuel screw (missing oring), which also needs to be adjusted per the pinned post at the top of the forum ('pilot setting')

Ok so while getting ready to go through my carb I noticed a huge dent in my header so I replace it and it seems to be running much better not much backfiring but she's still not perfect does it make sense that was most of my problem?

The dent was probably not the issue; probably an air leak at the crush washer.

You are supposed to replace the crush washer if you change pipes.

The new header came with anouther crush washer and she's really running better but still not that smooth at a steady rpm I know a lot of wrs do this but that's why I got the aftermarket cdi that said it got rid of that and its still there I also had the carb rebuilt and jetted but could it still need to be cleaned out better or is this stuttering not gunna go away?

If you are adept at adjusting your fuel screw, and have the dynatek on stock map # 3 (with tps connected) you should have no studder.

If you do have studder, you need to get the dynatek map plug tuner, and adjust your tps with the pc. It takes about 45 seconds, and no tools.

JD Jet Kit, R&D fuel screw, Quick Shot 2 accel pump plate, and thorough cleaning. My 03 starts, idles, runs, and accelerates perfectly.
