Re: Carb Probs

Howdy Pete, Welcome to TC. Sounds like you are going in right direction on jets, the time on the dyno may serve well getting carb dialed in to your elevation etc, you may be increasing air bleeds too. I think that normally a bbc in my area begins with 80/82 in front and 88's or so in rear. Do you have a rear Pv? My first guess is a #65 Power valve , depending on your cam profile. Need to check you fuel pressure and volume too. Depending on your application, a larger carb may be in order, Can someone lend you one to try out. I hear there are some kool cars in that area.

Re: Carb Probs

pete, jets ain't the probem , your fuel supply is not good. start at the tank and check it all out. u need a pretty big fuel flow. tell us about your tank,fuel line, pump, filter. i think you may need to go back down on the jets to get your plugs brown, if they are black you are way off. normally u never go more than 4 numbers up or down , u may have white plugs now and need more fuel, but your engine wont lay down at 3700 rpm from lean jetting. your using fuel out of the carb faster than its coming in. going to chassis dyno?
