1971 D-jet mixture adjustment
Posted by Duncan Atwood [Email] (more from Duncan Atwood) on Wed, 8 Oct 2008 09:24:47
My 71 99e is running again after much struggling - turns out the intermittent cutting out was a bad cap and rotor, or spark jumping from wire to wire.
Anyway, seems to run fine except it is blowing black soot (not much, but more than it should) and the plugs are black faster than they should be, and despite my hypermiling driving style (including the so cool freewheel), the mileage is low, about 26mpg.
So I looked up how to adjust the mixture, and the manual said to turn the knob on the side of the computer. Easy, right? No! There's no dang knob!
So how do I adjust the mixture on this early D-jet system?
