    Some of the work I am doing on the 426 Hemi carbs.
    Will post a step by step tutorial if there is sufficient interest.

    Suprising what you do under a dime.

    No fair using giant dimes. A tutorial would be very much appreciated.

    I'll buy 'em for a dollar

    Carbs sure have a lot of fiddly little parts, don't they? Remind me to post up my scratchbuilt carbs.

    Made these a few years ago. My eyes are starting to go to hell so I probably can't duplicate them today.

    Tage if you don't have what you consider enough "interest" yet to do a carb tute, add my name to the list. I have a back room (therapy) one off 20 cents worth of carbs I'm messin' with in 1/6th and it will be using 2 by fours atop a huffer....visible to the casual viewer and in plain sight. You would be saving me a ton of head scratching. Strut your stuff...please and thank you.

    By the way.....I still use the old mercury filled tubes to sync carbs. Yeah I know I'm a throw back to the stone age but it works for me and my old toilet bowl fueled push rod motors keep on smokin' the plastic and billet crowd. Don't need no plug in 'puter doc to hand me a ridiculous bill suggesting what might need tweaking.

    Mercury-filled tubes and a Uni-Syn? What's wrong with a good old rubber hose and a practiced ear?

    The younger crowd are shaking their heads by now.

    Styrene 20 cents worth of carbs tubes and an assortment of pin vise 20 cents worth of carbs bits make carb building fairly easy, if you have the eyes for it.

    That's a must-have right there. Who needs a computer when you've got a screwdriver? Used that to diagnose the torque convertor in the wife's Century. Right before we traded it....

    I make due with a vacuum gage and a small screwdriver to make those Holley 4"s idle @ 300 rpm on a V-8. I get 26 inches of vacuum @ 650 rpm on a freshly rebuilt motor. That's a smoooth runner for sure.

    As part of the "younger" crowd, I get upset with guys my age that don't understand the basics. As impressed as I am with the kids that can tune a modern motor with a laptop, I think there is alot to be said for the old style mechanics. I got my education working on the oldsmobiles my father owned when I was a kid. It has helped considerably as I've converted my mid 80's Camaro to an older setup. No electronics at all (legal here after the car is 25 years old).
