I was going to ask how one adjusted the metering jets, as they are just an opening screwed into the carb where the metering rods go into. So what do I do?

I could enrich the mixture without idle problems or loosing vacuum, should I do that until i get a rough idle then turn them back to the last point where it was fine?

Well you could adjust the piston that controls the needle height. Raise it a bit to make it richer, lower it to make it leaner.

But this will only effect your main system, not your idle system. Unless your idling speed is set to high.....

I still wonder if eliminating the EGR completely will make it happier. Then you know where to go next.

EGR mimics all kinds of other problems. From ignition to the carburetor.

Probably better none than a leaky one...

The only good EGR is a working EGR...

A piece of aluminum cut to length with two holes drilled into it will completely eliminate it as a problem.

John - Raising the metering rod like you said had helped me a few days ago when i was having this problem perhaps I could try raising them a little more.
86cj- I do already have a plate i cut to block of the egr, its not installed as i was concerned about its long term survival, I would like to get a egr delete plate. Anyone know where to get one? I think there was a thread on that a while ago.

Hey guys another quick question, the other day I was changing out the old calipers for refurbished ones. I lifted the back end up to test the drums in the back and found that they dont engage with the break pedal but work perfectly with the parking break. Is that normal?

How hard are you push down on the pedal and do you have power brakes?
60%-70% of your braking is in the front.

No power breaks and 100% compressed. So im guessing its not normal, because most of the breaking is done in the front anyway should i worry about finding and solving the problem? It would be kinda nice when 4x4 to have all 4 breaks but not necessary.

First, make sure your rear brakes are adjusted correctly. Then have someone 'stand' on your breaks and see if you can turn the rear wheels with your hands. The rear wheels need to be off the ground for this........
