    Thanks for the offer Joe, I'm thinkin' were going to stay close to home...not a lot of confidence in these carbs yet.

    Still testin' those Barry grant carbs. We sent back the last set to BG who said "we don't know how your engine ran with theses, there were so screwed up"

    Got a new pair from them to test.

    I'm out! The family wants to do something together, so were going to Modesto Reservoir this Sat. It's more kid friendly, and they got a nice beach to hang out at...

    The only thing positive I can say about those carbs is they look nice, other than that they are junk!!

    1st set I received according to BG were missing some of the cross-drilled holes in the metering blocks to complete the circuits. They were also missing float bowl screw washers and the powder coating flaked off. They can stock with #88 jets in the primary's but had a single #75 jet in one of the metering blocks.

    The 2nd set I received had the primary and secondary metering block swapped and 1 oddball jet (#83 jet) in the primary's. All this after their top tech guy went through them to make sure they were right this time.....what a joke.

    I've been waiting 2 days for the plant manager to call me back.....somehow I don't think I'll ever get that call.
