What jets are currently in that 850 and does it have a secondary power valve?

The reason I was asking I run the same carb and I thought your A/F ratio looked pretty close. Just wanted to compare. I just changed over to a power valve plug and jet extensions on the secondary side. Stock my 850 had 80/80 jets in it along with prim. and sec. power valves. Just put it back together yesterday with the new parts and I set it up with 80/90 jets. I figured if I was going to be off I better error to the safe side. From what I've read you need to go up 8 to 10 jet sized when removing the power valve and that you need to richen up with jet extensions also, hence the #90 jet starting point.

Does anyone see anything wrong with this starting point?

When I was runnign without a power valve in back, I always ran about a 6-8 number split form fornt to rear. One carb I bought came form Holley with a PV plug in back, and it was jetted 8 numbers rivher in back from teh factory, so that should be pretty close.

Sorry, I have no idea. I have never had a motor dynoed therefore I have no idea what to look for on a chart like that.
