I have received an LM-2 A/F meter, and am scheduling a local shop top weld in the bung. I will eventually get the info on all current chokes, venturis, and jets, but it may be several weeks - on my way to China for a couple of weeks. I'll update everyone on my progress when I have more info.

In the Des Hammill book he says that for Dellortos the average turns for the idle mixture screws from closed is from 3 to 5. That is incorrect, or too wide then?

Well, the answer to what thermostat is installed would be "none". I ordered a 160 deg to put in and found out when I opened it up. Last time I pay $10K to someone to do work I am capable of doing myself. I'm apparently not able to learn from past mistakes. I am curious to see if this fixes the overheating. A web search found opinions on both sides of the effect of leaving it out.
