Got the carbs installed today.
Had to relocate the fuel pressure regulator up on the engine wall. It was in the driver side wall and that space is now occupied by new shinny air cleaners. Now I am having a low pressure issue. max I can get out of my pump is about 1.5-2 psi. .. I did not have this issue before moving the regulator. Anyway it took a bit of fuss to sync the carbs and get the fast idle dialed in. Nothing unusual but space is a bit tight getting to the mixture screws. I had just enough time to take it out for a quick test run to see how she felt.
fFist impression with out touching the jets. Runs strong pulls hard and I don’t run out of power as soon at I hit 4200rpm. Like before. The engine wants to keep spinning. I didn’t try to find redline. I do have a heavy lag when I stop the peddle so I’ll look into the fuel pressure first and then start on the jets tomorrow working with the wideband.
in process photo don’t mind the bubble wrap and painters tape.
