    Re: Me and my cars.....

    So, this one now works.

    Re: New Member!!!

    I'd start off checking the float level in both carbs. They are set up such that fuel rises almost to the top of the jet at static conditions.

    So, it's ready to go except for radiator hoses.
    I tried to get by on the cheap by re using my radiator hoses. Nope.

    Re: Me and my cars.....
