Hi Malcolm,
You're right. As I said in my earlier post our old Perkins is very noisy. It's difficult to hold a conversation in the cockpit, especially with the canopy up.
Regarding your flat spot - if you've renewed the carb then I guess that rules out a faulty accelerator pump so the next thing I would look at is the vacuum advance unit. The best way is to use a strobe light which will show if both the vacuum and cenrifugal advance is working properly. When you crack open the throttle you should see a momentary retard, then as the revs pick up it should smoothly advance. I hope this is helpful.
Regards,
Mike.
