.136 is fine for a 1050 but not a 1250, I'd start at least .160. Go up from there to start. You will see a MPH improvement when you go in the right direction.

Everything else is OK to start, you might plug the .026 bottom e-bleeds and then get an AFR reading to go from there.

Plug the .024 as well, a trend I saw on my last logs will have me making a similar change, of course that will be a while now.

Well, you could put either Bruce or your brother in that thing and continue testing?? ;-)

Mark first off, Welcome back. Glad you are doing well and things turned out good for you.

Secondly what did you see in the log that is having you block the other bleed off? I only run 2 emulsion bleeds in the carbs I do from 024 - 028 depending on engine setup. On the dominators I run .024 - Blank - .024 - Blank - Blank on the 5 emulsion blocks. With the 4 emulsion blocks I do .024-Blank -.024-Blank. This is the best I have found so far. Didnt do the extensive testing that you and Bruce did but moved them around a bit. I was going to try a setup a little like yours next week to see how it changes things.

I've been told not to strap in for a while. The belt goes over my incisions. Plus, I haven't cross licensed for over 125 inches.

Barry's the new testee for a while. We're gonna use his fuel, kinda long distance. I'm looking for a 170 MPH pass on hootch. =D>

Meanwhile, I have some Innovate stuff to install.

So do you want me to plug the .024 now before I test or leave it and see what happens...??

Yes, plug it first. On the 1250 I saw a lean trend up top I didn't see on the 1050 with the same setup. .020, plug, .020, plug plug.

I am working on getting someone I trust to drive it a few times, but i need to build some stamina and have my incisions heal before I'm up to being crew.
