hey all, on a scale of 1-10, how bad is this carbon build up compared to yours? I got my T last year, and this is my first time cleaning up the inside. I've replaced just about everything on the outside of the engine, but still lack some power. Hopefully this will fix it! zab

Need to lean the carb down some.

I would get rid of those original valves. Since you say you're low on power, how well are they seating?

Looks to me like you're pumping oil with the rings. Otherwise it looks typical of an engine that has not been apart in a while. I agree with doing a valve job and changing out the 2-piece valves with modern 1-piece alloy valves.
