Delighted to hear the issue was a simple one and easily solved, I recognise the 'senior moment syndrome' :D .

You dont need to be senior to feel stupid, although I do feel it far more often nowadays :D

I was in my late 20's when made my mistake with the float chamber vent caps, I was an engineering designer virtually a full time part time mechanic and also truly believed that what i didnt know was not Worth knowing (the folly of youth) and I spent weeks trying to find the cause of my problem, I knew it was fuel starvation but that was all, if there had been a wise 58 year Chancer around I probably would have dismissed any of his suggestions as coming from an old fool :(

No my younger know it all persona paid a fortune on a Rolling road to finally be shown his senior moment :oops:

The Piper 285 cam should give you something in the 135 to 140 hp region.

You shouldn't feel too bad about the missing hole. Had a friend who forgot the hole as well, and there was a recent post on turbosport where the hole had not been drilled.
