    I did a search and coud'nt find any info! Anybody installed the off-raod neeedle & seats kit for the Performer Series Carbs? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif If so, How hard was it? How well did it work after the replacement of the needle & seats? Did the majority of the stumbles on the hills go away? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    yes----throw away ANY holly, edelbrock, carter etc. as far as you can and get a q-jet----and away goes the bogging. i did everything i could to a holley----offroad needle &amp; Seat--extended jets--center hung floats---etc. and NOTHING WORKED---it still sucked---got a rebuilt q-jet and very rarly will it ever bog---lets say when all you can see is sky and your about to fall out of your seat--upside down.

    [​IMG] thats a q-jet workin---id say 65-70 degree angle /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gifand it bogged, but started right up and finfished the obstacle.
