Reply to "Five Cent Racing's Engine Throttle Hold Tool"

It's not really that difficult, just intimidating the first few times (and Danny will back me up here...) - You have to be patient and do each step slowly and allow things to settle on each step.  A "Unisyn" tool is pretty much useless in my estimation (I have one, somewhere, unused), but a "Snail" gauge is indispensable.

Danny P. has posted a great article on here that tells you how to do it.  The hardest thing about the whole process is finding the mixture and air by-pass screws on the sides of the carbs if you need to adjust them - Really.  I use a mirror to see where things are and then just find them by feel.  The mixture screws are easiest as then stick out, but the bypass screws are a little more hidden and hard to get at.   Still, no big deal.

Besides, all your neighbors (and especially your wife) will wonder what the hell you're doing over there when you're syncing things at 2,000 RPM for five minutes in your driveway.    Or in your case, using the garage as a megaphone to blast that sweet exhaust note out into the rest of the neighborhood.
