I got the carburetor problem fixed so now the Brat idles at 800 or so, instead of 3500RPM. (Amazing what a long skinny flathead screwdriver can fix.) So, now I can drive it around again without burning up the clutch and jerking to a start. :headbang:

I put a picture of the Brat in my gallery, hopefully the link works. I still need to put the emblems and mudflaps back on. Next I think I'll paint the wagon wheels black. After that, I give serious thought to lifting it... :brow:

It is fully registered, smogged and insured. Smog was a little close to the limit on HCs if I recall correctly, but it passed. So I may put a new cat (that came with the car) on it when it comes time to smog it again.

Drove it to work today and after driving about 20 miles on the freeway, the idle was back up to around 1500. Probably need to spray some more carb cleaner into the carb.
