Re: Q about variator To marlon from oversea.
The best way to set the AFM spring tension is to turn the cog clockwise (I think) until the flap is just in the closed position. Then turn the cog one more notch. The wiper arm should NOT be right at the bottom of the carbon strip. The last owner may have moved this too. It should be about 2-3mm up the strip. You may have to experiment with this setting to get the idle mixture correct. Too far and it'll run rich, too little and it'll probably pink at 3500rpm under load.
