i should say thanks to Rayje who posts on here also as he has helped me with this with a carb , the engine is a 23 deg 417 ci sbc. shows around 720 on the dyno. =; My wife has done the last year of racing a national series and we were lucky enough to win the series with the points going down to the last race of the year.

Congrats on the season championship. \:D/ It's hard enough to just win a race let alone a season points championship. \:D/

Yeah Rayje is a member here but posts very little. I guess when you have as much carb info as we have here plus guys with a fair amount of experience as well it leaves little to discuss in the realm of every day carb work. That and some vendors don't like to give out free info but hey, that's fine and I do understand why. It's just a good thing that shrinker, Maley, jmarkaudio, nomad, Scott Smith and a few others that don't come to mind at the moment don't think that way. ;-)

What kind of car is that? I like it, that's a really neat looking ride. Well, other than the steering is on the incorrect side. ;-) Runs well too and red is my favorite color.
