Ok, so I have this nifty OF carburetor and want to give it a try. Have never used one before. I noticed that the throttle shaft has a graduated plate that should make contact with a roller on the end of a lever .. that operates a plunger. Iím guessing this is an accelerator pump. But on mine it doesnít seem to do much (see video). Should I look for a roller with a larger diameter? Like I said ... never had one of these before. See video:

I'm running an OF and it is a very good carb. The economizer is set to come off the ramp just after the throttle comes off idle.Stan Howe has good info on his web sight and also makes a needle and seat upgrade that I use and recommend.
