      Finally some success, cleaning the carbs was the key! :laugh:

      I was told they had been cleaned before I bought them so I didn't think to open them up and check... I did a light disassembly on...

      I found an old aircooled shop and passed by today. They had one used (with chopped up baseplate) filter setup that I bought for a few bucks to do a mock-up.

      I'm searching locally to see if there's an aircooled shop that I could pass by and check one out in person. I'm too cheap to order one up and risk finding...

      Aside from little pod air filters, it seems like the low profile Type 3 are probably the best way to go.

      I was just re-reading your post and tried to ninja-edit on the timing question.

      Cool score!

      Pressurization in the intake is odd. Maybe a cylinder has intake valves stuck open?
