Re: Wanting to check valve clearances

AER. A eager runner

Other information , noise on cold start up then seems to quiet up after a few minutes. Maybe I should leave it as is.

Doesn't make a difference if gav closed or open . I adjusted it to 3/4 turn out
only because it should be out some. Car starts and runs well as it is.

Re: Poor gas mileage

7 or 8 miles to the gallon is not normal even with some stop and go driving.
Pull a spark plug and check to see if it's color is black and looks sooty.
If so recalibrate your carb.
