No, Euphoria is not an exotic new gasoline blend for our LBC's.
I have euphoria because I finally got my carb problem sorted last weekend after a year of fiddling with them.
The front carb was running coninually rich (black sooted plugs) and no matter what I did I could not lean it out any more.
After rebuilding the carbs (twice) I finally figured out that the fuel level (float height) was not correct even though it was set per spec.
I got it right by trial and error removing the float bowl while the carb was still on the car and making incremental changes.
I'm sure my TRF supplied fuel needle valves must be a different height than the originals.
Anyway, the plugs are now a perfect tan colour.
Now, onto the next project!

If you are running Grose Jets, they do use a different float height.

Congrats on the final tuning. And thanks for the tip Doug. I never knew there was different settings for the Grose Jets, but what would you expect from parts called CD or "Constant Depression" carburetors. And that's not a joke....

To the victor go the spoils. Now take it out for a long drive and enjoy it.
