This is the root of the problem. My Leask solenoid valve holds off any supplemental dropping of the control pressure to 4800 RPM, so I should get no enrichment at all from this. I have disconnected the boost signal line entirely from the WUR, and I still get the enrichment problem below 4000 RPM. The enrichment happens for no apparent reason.

My theory that I need to examine is that when I get to boost threshhold, the additional mass of air throws the airplate open, thus enriching the mixture. As I do not have a 930 fuel head or metering plate available to me for a comparison, I am guessing the inertial effects from the additional pressurized air blasts the airflow metering plate open further than it should, resulting in additional enrichment. I am thinking about putting an extra weight on the airflow plate as an additional counterbalance, with this weight being in the form of a large fender washer under the 6mm bolt which holds the actual plate to the pivoting arm. Not very scientific, but I am sort of clutching at straws.

I also need to check again for any air leaks. I have had some before, which gave me threshhold problems.
