Rich/Lean gauges?

Post by Sloppyduner » Wed Sep 21, 2005 11:22 pm

:?: Last night I was crusing the isles at my local Auto Zone and came across a gauge that supose to tell you if your running rich or lean. How could this possibly work? I'd LOVE to put one on my 350 Odyssey BUT I have never seen or even heard of one of these before. Have YOU? And if so would they work on a two stroke at different elevations :?: :!: :?: :!:

THANKS

I believe the rich/lean gauges read O2. I like using a EGT gauge myself..

EGT Gauges

Sloppy, if you're going to install an EGT, do it right and get the product designed for your application. Call Randy at Odyessysalvage. Randy is a great guy to buy from.

Might think about if you really need one. IMO, if stock, you don't need one. Modified or Racing: ABSOLUTELY.

I've got a heavily modified Pilot, and I don't have an egt guage. Not necessary unless your racing and dialing the carb to the absolute edge of the air fuel envelope.

Biggest tip I can give on the pilot and odyssee motors is get'er dial in right, change fuel filters often, and never let the tank run dry, ever. Run it out of gas one time while on the throttle for any length of time, like say climbing olds etc and you'll melt her down. You never want to starve those motors.
