slight popping at 2500 r.p,m,
Thanks everyone for the help. I brought the rpms up to 2500 where the popping/missing was happening and proceeded to spray brakekleen on different areas. When I sprayed the area around the reed valves it smoothed out. I pulled the carbs back off installed new hoses from the reed valves to the heads with new clamps and that did it. When I initially inspected them they seemed in good shape with tight connections but perhaps one got loosened up on the carb install, they do get bumped around a bit when wiggling the carbs back into place.
