    I have been moving things to Windows 7. I like it much better than 8 and if you turn off the fluff, it runs fine on older hardware.

    Water in the Carbs

    Not just into the air cleaner but directly into the air tubes (is that the right term?) towards the carbs. Initially, I couldn't figure out how any moisture in the carb intake could ever make it to...

    See you there! No additional work except for minor electrical and trying to figure out why I'm getting so much water into my carbs. I think George may have found a cheap solution. We'll see, it won't...

    In interior Alaska, we are very fortunate that there isn't any ethanol in any gas. If you want some, you have to add it yourself in the form of Heet or some...

    Great idea, I hadn't thought of temporarily sealing the vents. I've never experienced gas running out of the tubes onto my boots (yet) so I'll assume that it won't happen for the duration of this...
