Where's the best place to get overhaul kits for these carbs, and any hints and tips on tuning them. Running just one on a 24 stud 85 hp stocker.

Whats the trick to removing the float level sightscrews behind the gennie?

Cheers and beers
Jimbob

Jimbob,

Pull the carby off first makes it heaps easier or remove the gennie.
Rebuild kits are advertised in the latest ASR (Diablo Motors) or try John's Rod & Custom.
For tuning screw the mixtures all the way in and then unscrew them 1 and a half turns each (this is a good starting point) and go from there.
Half heartedly rebuilt my 97 in January only to find out it was bad fuel not the carby
Good Luck

JIMBOB,
Try asking FlatOz as he is into that stuff in a big way and if he has them I think his prices could be pretty good.

Jimbob,

that aint a sight screw its where you get to the jets. and you will need a special jet tool or get a good screwdriver and grind down the sides to make it fit thru the hole to get the jets out.

but if your only running one you wont need to rejet. only for multiples. I have a few flathead bits , drop me an email if you want.

Thanks Flatoz, I've built a few engines but I'm a bit flathead retarded . Have got about 8 runners here at work that I need to keep running and am building one for the roadster so I better start learnin!

Those screws looked identical to the float level screws on a holley.

Cheers and beers
