Before we get absorbed in the next part of the mission creep ...
How is the choke coming along?
Also, on the topic of carbs & cold ... has anyone had any issues with icing with the FCRs?
The CV carbs are prone to this (in fact, on the ADV, I have an over-ride for the carb heaters and I leave them on all winter). Are the FCR's any more/less prone to icing?
