Mike, My method of adjustment is to run the needle in till it lightly touches the seat, back it out 1 & 1/2 turns, start engine and adjust from there. To adjust, turn one way till it gets rough or misses, turn the other way till it gets rough or misses and set midway between. Main jet must be set at full throttle, and idle jet at idle. Always adjust main jet first.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
