I have a question. I just finished installing my new baer 4 wheel disk brakes. When I was seasoning the rotors with the hard stops the engine would die. When I restarted it from rolling it would appear that it had flooded since I could see a lot of black exhaust. I checked my floats and they were a little high, but after adjusting them it still wants to die under hard braking. I have a 427, single plane intake, 850 DP. I have an electic fuel pump, not a high volume or anything with no regulator. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Install a plastic "vent whistle" on the rear fuel block to prevent fuel slosh into the carb.
Or extend the vent tubes higher.

My camaro is a '69 with a midly built 350. It had the same problem and when I was almost hit in town by a lasy that was blinded by the sun in her eyes, I slammed on my brakes and then tried to crank my car for 5 minutes. ANYHOW!!! I started to reas up on the subject, and found that my problem was badly needed jet extensions. After I installed them, with the correct float, I could stand on my brakes, and the car would not even stutter.

If you have enough room put a piece of hose between the front and rear vents with a hole in the top of the hose. We used that for years on the drag cars and had no problems.
