dunno what you think is so fantastic about the vid, there are a ton of dft32 conversion vids out there with tons of easy to get info, from a to z

folks that have gone there extensively have also not had your results, but they are at least fully open with info and what they are doing with pix, videos etc

whereas,

you have many claims backed up by at most, very difficult to get info of any kind & even today, stuff like this thread starter and ~ "great vid eh?"?!


if this question is too far off whatever the intended topic is in this thread, i'll start another
anyone else have current verifiable results, as in running clean plugs with a langdon carb running stock settings? a thread? links? hopefully other than abandoned threads

there are certainly reports to the contrary, as in a rich condition at low/idle RPMs, along with final tweaking being the norm

even here, i think the main argument is ~ "you must go about it in a specific way" and apparently only one other is heating the manifold in the same way, this after years

the initial reports with this bolt on as is carb also included, info, pix, vids with no heat and clean plugs, tho that fella moved on

my conclusion? currently, this is not a bolt on good to go carb (tho might be some lucky ones) without supporting and easily verifiable info/evidence, or at least some duplicated results,

bits of info scattered here and there to support a claim, and it's been years now, does nothing for scc, other than create problems,

here's another vid
https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/...000-frame.html

and much more

82, going over it

had a hog in there for a bit but basically,
back in the saddle after a ~ 24 year break,
at the time, had an oncoming made a left turn deal

that is because some purposely tried to hijack it and go off topic.
when that happens, I delete the off topic responses.
all will come back in order when time permits Steve to get things situated at home.. right now, the thread and the forum are not his #1 priority. so just be patient. Rome was not built in a day.

This will never be Rome. I saw no one purposefully trying to hijack and take this off topic. A lot of these get taken off topic by the originator.

after another read of this and several other threads in the same vein,
i tend to agree. a bit of a search for CM here and ( more interestingly)
on other web sites does not paint a pretty picture.
one very popular site even has one whole thread dedicated to the originator . ( less than favorable views , it has to be said )
so, time will tell if there is any substance here.

Correct. A heated plenum floor is specifically stated by Tom Langdon as a requirement. He states this on every carburetor he sells verbally to the purchaser via telephone. He emphasizes this need to all Goldwinger's as a minumum. It is not optional and he makes that clear.

It is only a argument for those that do not follow his instruction on heating the plenum floor via intimate contact with engine coolant.

There is no argument. Do it or don't. Not my problem..

Your conclusion is easily summarized; There is nothing comparable to give you any support to the evidences you are seeking.

The Jessco tuned-port manifold has no comparison.

Your conclusion is relevant to what exact point?
