You can also play with the damper oil in the carb.

It's cheap easy and reversible.

These little things help ;)
Is it running properly now - without cutting out?

It's better but not perfect.
Been working on the Moss this week between work so not had any time for another proper test drive.

Hmm, despite endless twiddling with the idle mixture I can not get rid of all of the low throttle staggering. :(
Mid & open throttle seem fine. :)
The float bowl o-ring has arrived so I will remove the carb to fit that & check what needle I have at the same time....... :?

It's got to be pure virgin :roll: ;)
As Woody says engine oil is normally fine but I've actually got EP90 in, seems to work a bit better in my engine - and both my Commers too.

Hmm...I think I may possibly could have maybe resolved the faltering problem! :shock: :)
Whilst I had the carb. off again to fit the new float bowl gasket, I lifted the needle nay about 1mm & replaced the 3-in-1 oil in the dashpot with engine oil....an immediate improvement BUT my sense of relief is subject to a proper test drive in the morning!

The 3 in 1 is probably too thin and the piston rises too quickly giving a momentary weak mixture, the engine oil should work better.
Well done with the dampers too ;)

Well HOO-FLIPPIN'-RAH..! :D
Finally the Traveller is running just fine & dandy with no bogging down, & it's definitely much better with the big bore system.
Huge thanks to you all for chipping in with help & advice, especially Panky for patiently
guiding me thru this upgrade...although my raised stress levels & empty wallet are all your fault Panky..! :roll: ;) :lol: :lol:

Not sure which final tweak was The One as I lifted the needle & changed dashpot oil at the same time....we'll never know...... :shock: (cue Rod Sterling's Twilight Zone soundtrack)... :)
