    I'd go with a pushrod adjustment, points, but what's with the phillips screw driver intake clamp bolts? man you need threaded with the 3/8 nut on it to drive it down on it! Can't crank on a screwdriver as hard. Do your heads have the oring slot around the intake? I see your intake manifold doesn't have it, I never had much luck with just bands on mine, I run bands and o rings.. clamps nice.

    You need to start your own thread.

    Johnny you mean you run the O-rings under the rubber bands ? I've never tried that. But yeah that clamp and rubber band combo looks like trouble. I prefer the O-rings with a coating of RTV then the two piece clamps.

    Thanks for all of the help guys! I've got an intake seal kit coming, new condenser and points and will adjust timing, pushrods and give the carb a good cleaning. If I have to resurrect this thread from the dead... you'll know it didn't work! Thanks again.

    Well post back with results for sure, I had a condenser take a shit on me once, popped and farted all the way home, but I still got there.

    Yup, I fought intake leaks all the damn time, if I saw even a hint of white on one plug, even if it was dark I knew I had a leak, and those o rings and bands work great.. Make sure your heads are lined up with your intake good first, I measure a lot to ensure it's proper.

    Default Now my iron!

    Hey guys! Now I own this 82 Ironehead..here's the story..

    put 1,000 trouble free, awesome miles on her last summer.
    This spring, she is back to shits ville! Runs best with enrich lever up, smoke, and bogs or dies when goosed.

    I know my jets are good...what happened over winter?

    Just cleaned and checked carb. Tried to check for intake leaks but that looks pretty good too... eep!

    oh also, new plugs, wires, and ignition. New oil pressure switch (to fix a leak). All those items worked A+ last summer...

    Oh, the "new" ignition I put in is teh actual key switch....old one was terrible. That fix went great, got me through teh second half of last summer trouble free.

    if it sat. drag some paper through the points, make sure they are clean. I have never had luck checking for intake leaks with spray.. I always take a propane torch and open it up (without lighting it) and gassing around the intake. be careful to direct it away from the air cleaner, otherwise its not gonna tell ya anything.
