Are both of those the same? The biggest thing I noticed is no power valve,

Out of curiosity can you use a pin gauge to check the thru emulsion holes? If it is larger then what you are going to use I don't see that as to big of a problem. The good thing is you can use set screws and they have a place to seat.

Looks like I would plug the middle hole and drill the other ones bigger as they are .014 O:)

You could try it with'em like that to see if there is a problem though.

BTW, I got a pair of those coming also.  O:) I may have to design a fixture to hold those things so I can pilot them with an end mill on my mill.  Hummm, can you say "compound vise" boys and girls?  I knew you could!  =;

Well, seems as though others are deciding you don't need all that emulsion.
Barry, making the angle channel bigger is no problem, just drill them .150 first then .159 when you drill the first 1 insert a .143 bit in the other side to give a visual guide on the angle needed, use plenty of WD40 for lube and go slow.
If all the emulsion holes are .014 I would give it a try before changing any of those. Just drill & tap for the lower idle jets and enlarge the angle channels then your blocks are ready to try. Be sure and remove the drill shavings with compressed air blowing from the lower idle feeds up through the angle channel, not from the angle channel down. [-X

Also be sure and clean the kill bleed when finished drilling as they will probably get a burr in them.

Barry I was speaking of the cross wells (angle channels) not the E holes.  I'll drill the E holes out to .028 with a pin vice by hand and plug the ones that aren't used.

Gearhead used my 1050 for about two or three months last summer and he never had any problems getting enough fuel to his engine.  The metering blocks in that carbie NEVER HAD THE CROSSWELLS DRILLED OUT TO .159.  Those blocks were originally on a 3310 Holley from years ago.  I don't remember what they were but they were large enough that I thought I'd try'em before I drilled them and they seem to work OK like they are.

Im going to drill that channel to 159 as I would rather do it now then have to take it all back apart again...

Are the front and rear block e holes supposed to be the same???? Cause I don't think they are O:)

Ken did you get your blocks from Ron yet???

My take is plug the center e-holes, drill the others to .028, .159 angle, clean out kill bleeds, move the IFR down.

The center e holes i can just put in a set screw as it does not go into the main well...

I agree with Mark, and don't forget to drill and tap the main body for T-slot jets.

Got my QuikFuel blocks today and it will be relatively easy to drill the crosswell out on these because the holes are counterboared large enough that the back side of the taper won't interfear with starting the drill.  I'll probably drill mine also since it will be pretty easy to do, even with a hand drill.
