    Intersting. I think it would be the last thing I would try however. I'd rather rebuild a carb or start with a new one and make sure it is properly tuned before I would plop mine on there backwards. Interesting to say the least, I'll have to remember that idea. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I ran one sideways.
    But that was on a Ford 300 ci inline 6. It ran best that way.
