I was able to see the color change with the dells.  I had bright orange at idle and put in my smaller jets. Color went to orange - blue.  I'm not that familiar with the Stromberg’s.  How is the mix adjusted?  Do yours have enough range or do you need leaner needles? The Dell's have nearly infinite adjustability.  That's why we love them so much.  We can spend endless hours with screw driver in hand just fiddlin' with them!

 

I'll try to get mine up on jack stands this week end.

Help please! Can you provide any more info on the "anti popping spacers from JAE" that solved your problem? I can't find out anything about where they are available from, which is a pain as I would like to try them to see if they work with my Dellorto.

Many Thanks - Bert.

Reason it didn't change much in color is that the adjustment of the Strombergs is incredibly fine - i.e., doesn't do much. You've have to change jets and needles to see much of a change.

Thats what I was thinking Ron, just not enough range even though they were new needles, well when I finally try the Dell's again I'll be sure to use the color-tune again.

Brett & Bert,

         Dave Bean at http://www.davebean.com has the anti-popping spacers (ask for Ken Grey). They have done the job for me. No more popping and smooth progression. One must also keep in mind where you are located. My Dells came from San Diego which is almost at sea level. Bringing them to Chicago, about 600' above sea level made them run rough till I changed the jets and e-tubes. Now they are smooth and very pleased with them. Brett, keep at it and sooner or later you will get them right. I will loan you my man-o-meter if you need it. You can check out my spacers this upcoming weekend at J2006 held in Springfield. Illinois. If you haven't registered "just come on down" and bring your car and family. We'd love to see ya.
