I got a brand new carb from Doug and I've been flying on it and it's been great.


But... when I'm leading and I burn 15 gallons, -2 burns like 13. Same ratio... since Lead should burn less, I'm probably running way rich.


I know how to adjust it, I'm looking for "that's about a 1 turn" or "that's 2 turns" on the flight mixture screw suggestion.



Also, with the new carb the mixture lever in the cockpit only goes about half way up even though that seems to be full travel stop to stop on the carb itself... any observations there?

Hi Jon;

With regard to your last paragraph: The stop for the mixture control is mounted on the throttle control so “about half way” would be it’s normal position in cruise flight. The carb. lever should also be in the “about half way” position at that time.

That assumes that your CJ is not one of those that were modified by cutting off that stop on the throttle.
