Lack of progress update.
I still can't get the carbs squared away. I made a minor tweak on the fuel screws and now it won't start. Put it back the way it was and it still won't start. I don't have a freaking clue why it's all screwed up now, but I'm out of time to get stuff done. I have to me out of the garage at the old house tomorrow cause I'm getting sent out of town for work again. Won't be back until after we close on selling.

Totally screwed. Looks like I'll be driving the BMW for starting line school and the first event.

Sounds like the ECM I had in my car for a few years. The better the tune today, the worse it was tomorrow. What it needed was a good throwing away.

After things get settled I'll go back to square one with Fuel.
Drain and clean the tank, replace fuel lines, ad last chance filter, tear down and go through carbs top to bottom.

pray it starts and runs well enough to tune.
On a positive note, a couple of drive belts were laying on my desk this morning.
