I can't see any of these new pics or the newest ones in the westy thread.  If you will post using [img] code links everyone will be able to see them.  Right now with the codes used only some people will see them.  For me i only see codes on my phone and my firefox on the computer.

Good to hear that you got it idling right. I too just switched out my H30/31 for a 32/36 and it runs like a dream now.

What was causing it to not idle right? was there something wrong with the carb?
