Re: 1969 with 700R4 and HOLLEY DOUBLE CRAPPER

about 40 seconds into the video he stated totally new clean sheet design like nothing we have ever seen before, totally new carburetor design.

I assume he never seen a Carter Thermoquad.

Other than that pretty good video and I did like the Thermoquad.

Re: 1969 with 700R4 and HOLLEY DOUBLE CRAPPER

Sorry guys for the late reply. I never received email notification of replies. So in a nut shell. The first Holley I traded for was a POS (corrosion) and Holley warranted it. The second carb was no better hesitation wise and after messing with it endlessly after getting it back from the, "old timer" one of the brass, press in air jets popped out when I was spraying carb cleaner through it! Holley then sent me a SECOND warranty carb to which I ever even removed it from the box (wouldnt swap it for a vacuum secondary per "policy").

I went to the local speed shop to buy the same Polymer body Street Demon my buddy loaned me. They talked me into the new, "Brawler" in stead and its been great. The new drive train is all here just waiting on a lift to open up at the fab shop to get started.

I cant WAIT to get the fuel injection in this car!

Glad it sort of worked out for you, and FI has its own set of hassles says the guy who used to run 3 carbs atop his rat, without issue.

No double pumpers on the street with an automatic? I better get that $100 Craigslist 850 DP off my truck before it realizes it's not supposed to work.

Maybe it works because the truck is light (5,000 pounds) or the huge stall (basically stock) or maybe it's because I did the research and put in the work to make it work right.

Holley had no control over what we are putting their carbs on so they had to set up these aftermarket carbs where they would be close to working on the intended generic application. It's up to the end user to get it right. That's why there's so many tuning parts available.

That's why I'm paying the dyno guy to map it for pump gas, E-85 and methanol.

It will have an ethanol sensor with Flex Fuel tune.

Well, you are example of ONE. The best in Las Vegas couldn't make it work, so.....

My post wasn't an attack on you. Or anyone, actually. My post came off as argumentative but that wasn't my intention. I meant to demonstrate that it can be done and doesn't take a wizard. I'm just a guy. I'm not a legendary race car builder or carb expert. Just a guy that took the time to figure out how to make things work. I don't know where you took it in Vegas but if the best couldn't make it work maybe I should set up shop there. There's clearly a need for competent help.

Then again, maybe that's why I learned this stuff in the first place- because nobody in my area could do a better job than I eventually did.

Nope. Not going into the carb business. No way, no how.

Skull Marine Performance Engines. He's very well known and built a few short track motors for a buddy of mine. They are limited to a 2 barrel carb and mostly stock engines. He ran at the front of the pack...
