Re: 46 stumble and idle screws

Idle mixture screws are toooo far out. The mixture screws have their biggest effect at idle. How many Carbs?

Re: Are the correct shock Absorber?

They are not correct for the front of a 35. See below the 35 front is to the left and above in the photos below. It is slightly smaller than the 36 and notice the difference in the arm angles.
