    I picked up another 357 yesterday, it was well used and in need of some love.
    When I pulled the plug to look in the cyl. it was black and wet looking as was the top of the piston but there were no scores or marks on the cyl. walls, wow this puppy is running rich.
    The first thing I noticed when I pulled the top off was the throttle did not open all the way, about 1/4 short of open, the rod to the trigger had too much bend to it. After I staightened it out a bit it got full travel.
    I tuned it to 13600 and now have nice tan color to the plug and piston.
    This is the second time I have seen this, it's something to watch for.
