I did attend Tired Iron but not as a racer. I tried unhooking the chokes but that made no difference. I replaced the needles and thought maybe the seat gasket for the inlet needed might be the culprit but no such luck.

No, I didn't replace the needle, just removed and cleaned. I keep circling back to the enrichment valve (choke plungers) though. I'm just not convince they are right. I'd sure like to get it right before Tired Iron but if not... heck there's always next year and I will not be pressed for time!

WTB: 74 TNT F/A and/or 76 TNT RV

I've been searching since last years "Tired Iron" for either a 1974 TNT F/A or a 1976 TNT RV and I haven't had much luck finding either one. I'd consider any condition and engine displacement but would like a complete machine. If there is anyone out there that knows of one, or knows someone who migh...
