Back on topic...what was the original question? Can you provide more from Clymer? A lot of us have the Honda specific service manual, so if you have that and can reference the chapter & page, we can all look together.
I just wanted to find out what Vaccuum pressure I could expect to find if I were to measure one side alone. I understand that sync'ing the carbs is independent of the magnitude at each port but a measure or comparison of the differential pressure between the two cylinders.
Clymer's pg41 step 9. indicates that "If the difference in gauge readings is 40mmHG or less between the 2 cylinders, the carburetors are considered synchronized." That delta seems high, and just wondered what the Pressure range was and what the decay was as the intakes were opened.
I wondered if there was a base line vaccuum pressure that I can confirm I am starting with on each side, or if there was a factory value maybe? I have access to some really nice hand-held digital manometers with damping features and the like and want to have the instrumentation spanned correctly for DP and would also like to check the vacuum for each side.
