Re: Bypass carb water heater?

I had to mill the water chamber away, as there was simply no space in my 69 mustang.

Re: 48, 52,54, or 56 cc combustion chamber?

make sure your carb is as flat as possible, because space under the hood of a 69 stang is VERY limited. i had have the autolite 4100 480cfm spreadbore carb that mike used to sell and i had to remove the choke and use the flattest carb plenum that i could find, and still cut out part of the hood to m...

Re: '65 200 not running right

i think your dual flowmaster exhaust is way to big for this engine. with a 2x 2.25" setup or bigger, you loose a lot of power in exchange for a lot of noise bacause you don't have enough backpressure. with a 2x2.0" setup it should be better, but with your 200cid engine, it's probably still...
