Anyone have one of these? Any recommended brand names (affordable)?

Thanks.

Re: Air/Fuel Meter

You can actually use a digital voltmeter hooked straight to the O2 sensor. Just hook it up and use it as a temp situation, but you must find out which voltages indicate lean, rich, etc. and there are places on the net for that. I have some of that info somewhere, I will look for it and let you know.

The gauges can be pricey for a poor person like me, but Summit has several. People have told me that it is better to avoid the LED gauges. I have no actual experience with the gauges.

Good luck and I will try to find the info for you,

Jim

Re: Air/Fuel Meter

Some of the led gauges are good, yo just need to make sure it comes with its own converter(computer). These ones tend to run between 100 to 300 dollars but the are extremely accurate. If you have a weber I would save your money and buy a good one. I have used them one other vehicles to get them to pass emissions.( makes adjusting carbs really easy)

Re: Air/Fuel Meter

Doom, A digital VOM can be had for $20-$25. And it can be used on any vehicle you own. Good article on doing this, (just ignore the fact itsd about Holley's it still works the same.):

Re: Air/Fuel Meter

I finally found the link to help with air/fuel mixture monitoring.

http://www.dorianyeager.com/carb.html

It refers mostly to Q-Jets, but the same technology holds true for all carbs.

Re: Air/Fuel Meter

Um, "I finally found the link "???

The content of that link was cut word for word from the link I put up. Looks like some one has been plagerizing?

Re: Air/Fuel Meter

Shows you that someone else knows a good thing too.

That looks like the way to really dial in a carb.

Re: Air/Fuel Meter

Thanks for the information - exactly what I was looking for. I won't need to buy anything, which is great.

Re: Air/Fuel Meter

it is saying that the oxygen sensor is producing a + voltage how is this? is it converting heat into energy it would seem as though it should be a ground i did hook up a tester to mine and it did show power (some how) but the readings make no sence maybe my o2 sensor is bad are you suposed to set it at an idle or at freeway rpm because mine varried it allways seemed about 900 at freeway speeds no matter where the air feul screw was set
