Happy days in Paris, Franks was running and on the move
Yesterday morning I tweaked the adjustment screw until I got a DC around 47%.
Took Frank for a ride and the engine has noticeably more punch and is much more pleasure to drive.
Although the engine runs better then from what I remember 2 years ago, there are still 3 issues:
1: Shaking/vibration at idle
When the engine is idling there is a noticeable vibration / shake coming from the engine. At first I thought possibly due to an misfire, but I doesn't feel like that anymore. When I hit the gas pedal, there is no hesitation, the V8 releases the torque right away. Spark plugs, ignition leads are new, rotor and rotor cap contacts cleaned and looking fresh. In P or N the shaking is worse then in D.
2: Hot start became less swift
When cold the engine start right up, but when hot she has more difficulty. In all the former at operating temps tests this was not the case, only now after I tweaked the adjustment screw.
3: Slight RPM drop when driving at 1500 RPM
Whilst doing a little tour over "la Perif" at 70km/h = 1.500 RPM, I noticed a hesitation or a sputter. Looking at the RPM gauge the needle drops about it's own width and goes back up to 1.500 RPM etc. Not able to capture it on video unfortunately.
@H.D. Could the above 3 issues point to a FD that needs to be calibrated?
