It was pretty warm out today, so I messed around with the SS/18 to see if I could get it to run with the choke all the way open. I removed both of the carb adjustment screws, wiped em' off and reinstalled them. Well it now runs perfect at every rpm including low idle.One of the adjustment screws was out 5 1/2 turns and now it's only out about three turns. Both rear rims are shot due to rust from water inside, so I have to find another pair. I put a narrow set of rear rims and tires on it from my 68'for now. I took it for a ride and everything works great!
Here's a pic of the 69' that sat in a neighbors basement for years. All of the paint is original, but the seat came off of my 68'. The original vinyl seat from the 69' is in decent shape, bit I have to repair to small rips before putting it back on.
