Re: 2011 X300 uneven idle
Stan- Believe me, I have no intention of running the choke 75% on while running the motor. I was trying a few simple things to see what would happen. This was one of them. And yes, it does point to less than ideal fuel/air mixture. As far as opening up the carb, you are absolutely correct. Not while the warranty in place. Stadrill- I didn`t know the newer motors were "eco-friendly". Gee- the X300 is already GREEN. (sorry. a lame pun but it was irrestable.)
In my early years, I was a reciprocating engine and jet engine mechanic. In 71, I retrained to Structural Repair (Tin bender/sheet metal).
F-4’s sucked, worst aircraft I ever worked on.
RF-4C and F-4D Zweibrücken A.B. 72 - 76,
F-4D Kunsan A.B. 78 - 79
F-4D/E Taegu ROKAF, adviser 79 - 80[/QUOTE]
Stan- I couldn`t agree more. Everything I worked on was old worn out used up Vietnam equipment. Just when I reassigned from Holloman to Kadena they had started getting F-15`s. So new, so nice, so clean.
Kunsan- 8thTFW The Wolfpack. I TDY`d there from Kadena for three weeks in March of 78 for the joint USAF/ROKAF Team Spirit(?). My, what a smelly, grungy little town that was just outside the base. I could tell some stories, buy those are better left offline. :-)
