    Clogged jets
    My 912 has always idled I little rough and I kinda pawned it on the carbs being out of sync. But last time I ran it, it idled so rough there was no way I was goin flyin. I tweaked the throttle arms to see if I could get it to run smoother, but no matter what I did it just got worse. So I dropped the float bowls and took out the idle jets, and what I found sure made sense why it ran roughly at idle and smooth at 2500rpms and up. 
    this is the mixture screw

    The N number is 121DC. I looked at that airplane back in May 2019 when it was in OK. It has a different prop on it now, but I'm pretty sure it's the same airplane. The guy that had it, when I looked at it, said it was de-registered 2 owners before him for "liability" reasons.  It's a nice airplane, engine sure ran nice, I hope you got it for a good price, he wanted 13k when I was looking at it.

    I wish I could have just cleared some trees for the approach end and have place to land But here in Arkansas you gotta push over hills and fill valleys to get something flat enough.

    Thank Tjay I'll try that. I'll  be going to the airplane this week end and do some more testing and probably run fuel additive though the engine, because I have a feeling I won't be flying for a couple more weeks

    The mechanic said he thought it was ceconite fabric not poly-fiber because of the blue tint from the inside

    If it's the 1.7oz than it would be tested with less weight than 56lbs right?
