    Carbed 4 cylinder and dieseling

    I agree that the Timming could be off and/or the temp is too high. However there is an rare exception that I have confronted on and off for 15 years. You mentioned that the Idle is too high? Posible vacuum leak and lean fuel mixture can cause that. Can create a ventury effect. Look bown the...

    RKC River Trip 8 - Discussion & Planning

    I keep hoping for a RKC River Trip 8 but doesn't seem to be materializing. I guess the tradition is dead? Too bad because I wanted to see it grow to epic size. It's a shame. :(.

    I didn't go on the Free Floaters river trip so I am hoping we are still doing this trip. Just need a date soon enough to schedule it in.

    RKC River Trip 8 - Discussion & Planning

    I'm taking my girls to the coast on the 16th of July and stay through the next weekend so that is my black out time for the trip. Not much chatter about the trip at this point. Hope this trip os still on. Either way I'm going at least once this summer. Anyone else planning to go?

    How does July 26th to 28th sound? Not trying to be pushy but we really need a date. Any other ideas or dates that would work better for everyone? I'm voting for the Hotel close to the turn off again. We never got to try it last time but was pretty reasonable for the location and price, I'm...

    RKC River Trip 8 - Discussion & Planning

    July sounds good to me. I just have to make sure I don't have my kids that weekend if choosen. July 4th is on a Thursday this year and might make it easier for most to get off work. However, the river might be too crouded and being the first weekend of the month, I would have my kids maybe.
