    Hi
    I have a tiger kit car with a standard 2.0 pinto engine fitted.
    Im having a few problems with misfires and odd backfiring under acceleration.
    I have checked usual things float height, timing, plugs, ht leads etc. with no luck.
    It has a 32/34 dtml carb fitted I was just wondering if it is jetted correctly.
    I am going to upgrade at sometime to a better carb but for now just wanted to use this if its ok.
    the jets in it are

    primary idle 55
    secondary idle 60

    primary main
    air 165
    emulsion f30
    main 125

    secondary main
    air170
    emulsion f22
    main 117
    does this seem ok for this engine tried trolling the net but i cant find anything
    hope someone could help me just want to cancel this out befors delving deeper lol
    many thanks
    Dave

    Get it on a rolling road if you think the fuelling is bad.

    Sounds more like a ignition timing issue then carb..

    Sorry for late reply. Yes 12 degrees seems a little retarded
