Double checking before I buy - Jet Kit

Hey everyone. I'm running very lean, and, so it would seem, need a jetting kit. I just wanted to check before I buy, that I'm buying the right thing. This is to be installed on a Weber 32/36 electric choke (DGEV right?). Is the following correct?

It's the first kit under "32/36 DGV Series Jet Kits":

http://www.carburetion.com/Weber/weberpartsjetkits.asp

"32/36 Jet Kit 4cyl. fits Weber DGV / EV AV

Comes with Main(145,150,155 ) ,Idle (65,70,75 ) ,sec Idle (55,60) , Pump jet 55 and Air Corrector (160,170,180 ) jets in plastic case."

Skip that.

Go to autosport down on Westlake.

Talk to Brad.

Buy a rebuild kit, and check your float and float level.

Then see how it is.

Support the local guys. They're helpful, and hardly any more money.

(unless you get a f#$%ing parking ticket)

I'm pretty sure I'm running lean, but you're right about a rebuild kit. And is Brad going to have the jets I need?

Oh, yea, here are my plugs...

Uber +1 for autosport. He ordered mine a couple of months back and got a bunch of extras so he should be able to hook you up right away. Better prices than I found online too. They kick ass!

The motor may be running lean, hard to tell with those plugs, but for sure the motor is burning oil. Try a hotter set of Bosch/NGK plugs, and rebuild the carb per CD's specs. After after that, recheck the new plugs after 30 miles and report back. Might be time for new valve guides and seals!

I've got burning oil for sure. It's especially prevalent on the overrun and it goes pretty quick. Thanks for your advice folks. I'll get the jetting squared away and do the rebuild, then report back. Here's another group shot of the spark plugs:

Time for a leak down test to determine if the rings are worth putting a rebuilt head on.

I see burnt oil deposits and the possibility of low compression on the center two plugs.

So, I was going to head over to Autosports today, but they're closed. I guess I'll get in there during the week. As far as compression goes, this is what I've got:

1 - 142.5

2 - 145

3 - 135

4 - 125

How is that? Poor, or really poor?
