Remove the jet. If it comes out with the "o" ring attached, good. If not, remove the "o" ring from the hole. Pull the idle jet from the jet holder, clean and blow it out. Next, blow out the hole from which the jet came from in the carb.
Place the jet back in the jet holder, replace the "o" ring and place the jet back into the hole it came from. Tighten until you feel it "bottom out". Do not over tighten. You want it snug, but not too tight.. Repeat this for the other 3 jets. Once you are done with the idle jets, then you can replace the emulsion tubes. Tighten until they "bottom out". Again, do not over tighten.
Replace the air cleaner and air cleaner top covers w/ washers and wing nuts.
Start it up and hopefully your car is running much smoother. OK, it did not fix my problem, but now I’m pretty certain it’s not a plugged idle jet anyway. Oh well, what to try next??? The sun is shining and my Speedster is still not running good?
Many thanks to Cary Hines of Special Edition, Inc. for help locating the jets and providing some photos and to Mike Ragonese who provided assistance, moral support, donated parts and special tools that made this job much easier for me to do.
Hope this helps. Later, Bob E.
