Re: preignition?


Run-on problem:You probably have your timing just a little off. It could
also be a worse problem, but try this first. Your engine is getting old.

Gas Guage: this is common.  The only way to correct it is get another
guage or take the chrome bezel, glass and trim off the face and glue it
back on. Be CAREFUL of the crome bezel taking it off (it's just crimped
on) that you don't tweak it so far that it will not hold when you
re-assemble.  Use some STRONG glue, preferably NOT a super glue because
it will leave a white haze on the grey behind. Use epoxy or JB Weld or
something like this.

Heater knob: The heater flap IS weight loaded to close. Your levers work
horizontally, right? NOT vertically. If this is so, that little funky
knob in the center of the cover is where you can adjust the tension on
the lever(s) (if I recall correctly). Easy.
