    302 Engine and Carb issues

    Since your idle screws are 1 1/4 out or so. Try cranking them all in a 1/2 a turn or more. See if that changes the vibration around. Did any of the carbs need more or less ( Big difference ) air than the others. What distributor do you have. MSD pickups get filthy. Whats your initial and...

    individual Weber screens

    Deffinately have to rejet the carbs with the layer of foam. I would guess two sizes or maybe more. Someone could use the gromets for mesh or whatever. The screen size I have is the 2.75 inch ones.

    individual Weber screens

    9 screens, I had eight and one flew off after a back fire. So I had to buy two more. As you can see I safety wired them in pairs. Saves from losing another one. I had to take out the foam to get my carbs right, foam still included. Then I just bought air filters instead...

    Noise tomorrow (I think)

    Im all for burnouts, sand or asphalt. The only time I ever cringe is watching those drag boats flip over and the motor is gone. I don't think Ive ever seen a wrecker boat pulling up a motor from Ole' Davey Jones Locker.

    Those look great John. I have an extra set of stock covers like those, if anyone wants to pay shipping for them.

    The heads look like they have three bars on them = GT-40 Irons. Which would be Fox Mustang/Lightning/Early Exploder heads.

    IDF Weber set up from

    Congrat's on the early Christmas ! I just use what works. Ford Duraspark and the Mallory 6AL. Just make sure you use the right gear. MSD and and such are easier to dial in. ( Have to spot weld the Duraspark to get the total timing right.) Not a big deal. Seems lately people have run into...

    Crankcase ventilation

    (Again this is a my cobra J pipe.) But gives you an idea. The "nipple" is welded into the J pipe about 3/4 inside. The end of the nipple has a 45 degree cut on the end. So the open potion of the nipple faces toward the direction the exhaust is going. When the gases go around the end of the...

    Crankcase ventilation

    Like what Kieth says above I use a exhaust scavenge system on my Cobra. ( I have webers.) Both valve covers are vented to the exhaust. A 5/8 pipe welded into the collector, one for each valve cover. A one way valve keeps any pressure coming back to the valve covers. You could run lines from...

    Ditto what Chuck says. You'll be able to fugure out what you need once you go through some tuning. Don't sweat the jets for now < HaHA.

    ThanX Chuck & Dave. Dave, I just used the push on hose from a local hydraulic shop. With Earl's barbed fittings and Auto Zone band style clamps. I couldn't get black hose at the time so I used blue. Im partial to plain jane looks. The kit from ractep seem priced ok especially if its the...

    Adjusting can be done with "finger/thumb" or the "Two index finger method." Either way, theres not really any problem doing it. I use medical clamp thingy's to get at the acc pump nut. Don't waste your money on filter screens. They choke the carbs beyond adjustability. Im working on a air...
