    Angry SU's playing up

    Im having problems with my SU carbs, they will run "ok" sometimes but then i'll stop and she will idle erratically and run like a sack of S**t.
    Ive adjusted the mixture 7 times today and its not helping.
    If i screw the mixture screws right in how many turns should i do out?

    Could it be those poppet valve thingies?
    I have another set of SU's that have them soldered up so i might try putting those on instead

    Bought new leads and coil today then had her emmision tested, we adjusted the mixture screws so that she should run super rich but the machine would register 2.1% so that looks like an air leak.
    I am going to have to buy yet another gasket set and replace the valley gasket in the bloody rain.
    This land rover lark is getting rather expensive and i have to go to devon at the end of the week but now my fuel money is diminishing so looks like it might be yet another missed holiday due to this bloody vehicle.
