Get a spray can of starter fluid and check to see if you have any intake air
leaks. That could cause the popping.

Subject: [Healeys] Dashpot query


I refer here to the piston/cap thing that screws into the top of an SU carb
dashpot. Thing that you unscrew to top up the dashpot oil.

So, one of my three always comes undone. The thread is fine..I've tried
swapping them around and it's always the same carb.

Car runs fine. Touch of choke to start it and for, say, a couple of minutes
thereafter. No backfires...bit of popping on the overrun downhill, nothing

Any ideas? 

I'm thinking mixture but unsure as to which way to go and unwilling to wreck
what seem to be good settings..
