Thanks Larry, I do have the Haynes and it covers most of the important carb tuning, etc. The engine does have the dual-carb layout and the more I re-read your posts, the less I think the problem is with the advance (thanks for getting me back on track). The vacuum lines were incorrectly attached to the 3-way valve, however (I hope someone knows German to tell me if the F, S, and U stand for what I think they do). I just pulled the rear carb off on Sunday to re-clean all of the passages and bowl and am thinking that I may have not perfectly alligned the throttle housing/bowl housing gasket. You're right, the carbs are a pain to remove because of the awkward mounting bolts, but I guess I have no other choice but to start eliminating possibilities....
