Have a 220f that pulses/strobes with the fuel valve open anything more than 1/2 turn.   I've read 220's are known to pulse.  At 1/2 turn it runs perfect.  When I got it the F/A tube was gummed up and I cleaned that along with the generator and air tubes.  Opening valve more does not make it any brighter.  Any reason to not use like this?  Does this suggest anything is out of whack and can be fixed?  Thanks.

It is possible that you may have installed the fuel control rod spring on top of the fuel control rod instead of under the fuel control rod. The spring needs to be under the rod to push the rod up when the fuel control valve is opened. The fuel control rod normally opens the fuel tube orifice to send only fuel to the generator when the fuel control valve is opened >50%.

I really can't remember which way I installed it.

If the tank depressurizes fairly quickly, then most likely the spring is not installed correctly. Putting the spring on top of the rod is kind of instinctive, been there, done that.
