Re: Can't throttle up. Or loses speed.

I should have added to my list above,

- check to make sure all your branch tubes are seated.

- check that there are no cracks in the rubber between the carb and engine (spray WD-40 while the engine is running. An increase in RPM means you’ve got a leak)

Re: Does anyone remember...

About 15 years back, a small group of URALists left the Irbit factory and travelled through Northern Russia, possibly Siberia, taking pics all along the way, with a really good narrative?

Re: Blue-Gray Rally 14-16 August

Kliff, Restrooms are pretty standard for a state park. As I remember the parking area was large enough for a truck and trailer. But, I would just call them and they can confirm.
