    Too bad you wasted your money on a mechanical secondary Holley for a truck. That is not only a gross mismatch for your application, it is a horrible choice for road use at all.

    It looks great though. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It seems to run great so far I put the same needles and seats that are on the truck avenger carb as well as the tall vent tube. it does'nt choke out on the steep stuff anymore, or yet I should say. I went to some hills i could never make before and it cruised right up them. would have liked to get fuel injection but a little too much money.

    You know what Tim? I'm gettin really tired of you knockin other peoples stuff. He's obviously very happy with what he's done so why you feel you have to go and basically tell him he is a complete idiot for having done so. Do us all a favor and keep your negative flippin opinions to your conceited self. You're comin real close to how I feel about Sample right about now.

    Funny thing about Tim is if you saw his rig and him driving it you'd know that all his knowledge is lost somewhere between his brain and his hands.

    I'm sorry Chad I didn't mean to hijack your post but I'd just had enough. I even forgot to compliment you on your work. I to am exploring the limits of non-injected rock climbing as we too are seriously short on cash these days.
    Anyways, once again good work Chad and one of these days we're gonna have to have a statewide get together. Good luck to ya in the future.

    nice!!! I like it and the fact you used a DP is a turn on for me because I'm more of a hot rod guy. What were your cam specs @ .050 and how does your motor do when you tromp it from a dead stop? I'm also considering this set up . But have had so many people tell me the same stupid [darn] as the 84 guy was saying I'm apprehensive about trying it. I have about the same set up but with 6" rods and gapless rings. right now I'm running a Edelbock that I'm not real happy with. Been through all kinds of jet and rod changes and still not running very good. LOOKS GOOD liken the valve covers /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Thanks for the comments guys, It runs real nice. The carb seems ok so far, been on a few times. Still getting used to the power difference. And the fuel consumtion as well. Chad.
