But the lingering question is: will you change it? We are all aching to know.

If you use any kind of sealant, it can make life difficult if the carb ever has to come off again. Sealant can also flow into the small emissions holes in the spacer and the baseplate rendering them...

I've never seen so much oil there before. Too much OMP oil? And the moisture is a mystery to me. Did it rain on your carb? Heh.

The amount of oil I see is strange. Maybe the gasket you are using...

Not true. Only SA and FB differ in any significant way. But regarding the differences between 81-82 and 83, vs 84-85, those are the three groups in the FB production run and the main difference here...

If it is an 81-82 like I suspect, he will see about 225mm, but that is due to the actual friction surface he is measuring. This means he can probably install a 225mm disc. However he can't fit a...

Hot start assist. It is a fusible link in case it makes contact with a ground somewhere.

It'll be ok for now but next time get an 11 tooth. They spin the engine a little bit faster and have less angle on the flywheel teeth wearing them less over time.

By the way, an FC NA starter is...

Yep on the front plate. I use a big socket to tap the new one in. Be careful digging the old one out.

From reading your other thread just now, I see what you are talking about, and I have discovered similar problems in my travels. Yes, a stud is a good idea for you as this will be a sturdier option,...

Don't bother changing the pilot bearing if it is still good. Too many people screw this up for no good reason other than they lacked the right tool. Just grease it up and maybe change the pilot seal...

Don't use ATF. It's bad. But I understand not every place in the world has Marvel Mystery Oil. Hopefully the ATF won't do more harm than good. I'll never put ATF into an engine.

The Nikki can be made to perform better than you can possibly imagine. But stock ones can be pretty lame, though still better than a poorly set up 2bbl.

There are some who use the weber on this...

I agree about the terrible Holley FPR. I had to remove all of them due to leaking from the diaphragm and random flooding in the carbs (Edelbrock and Holley at the time).

These days I'll only run a...

The heat exchanger is probably larger than your typical exhaust stud in the engine. What you want is a size that is more likely 12mm x 1.25 or 1.00 which is rare and can be potentially difficult to...

Keep the OEM seats but change out the needles if the OEM ones are old and hard at the viton tips (black rubber-like material). You must "burnish" the sides of the new needles on the back of a spoon...

You adjusted your floats so they may be bad now. And the carb requires only 2.5psi. I don't know where the misinformation came from.

The float bowl vent solenoid also needs to be functioning to...

I would change the trans mount at the same time because they do sag over time.

Even if they aren't separated yet, the sag can really lower the back end of your trans when you swap in new motor...

I once came across a carb with a similar stumble that had a loose screw there as well. It is rather uncommon so it is not one of the first places I usually look. Glad you found it.

Floats don't magically go out of adjustment. Float bowl vent solenoid might be sticking / gummed up. Or the rubber tips on the needles are old and hard.

Hmm, I've never heard the altitude compensator referred to as an ACV. I thought you were talking about the air control and check valve, which we all call the ACV for short.

But yes the alt comp is...

Mine is under the car near the trans drain plug bolt. Never any heat problems this far away from the engine. A wideband has it own internal heater so it's fine back there.
