    Default Blower carb Questions

    Im looking to run two 1050 dominators on a 540 ci motor with a 14/71 with about 10-12 lbs of boost running 92 octain gas or maybe E85.

    What is the direnc between the marine carbs and the standard auto carbs?
    Can the auto carbs be converted?
    What dose the boost referance do on the carbs?
    Is boost referance the only diference between the blower carbs and none blower carbs.
    Will linckage from two 1150's fit two 1050's?

    What is the direnc between the marine carbs and the standard auto carbs? Marine carbs have the "J" tubes so when they flood, the puke directlty in the motor
    Can the auto carbs be converted? Guys have been running them for years. Hell, Ive been running them for years! I never buy marine carbs,starters,distributors,or alternators. Waste of $$ in my opinion. UNLESS you have a covered engine.
    What dose the boost referance do on the carbs? Basically, they fatten up the motor. They can be a pain in the azz (sucking and blowing on the pv). Thats the easiest way to put it. Save your $$$$$$....
    Is boost referance the only diference between the blower carbs and none blower carbs. I think so but not 100% sure. If you have a carb shop modify the carbs then you will have what you need to match your combo.
    Will linckage from two 1150's fit two 1050's?Yes! ALL 4500 series carbs are similar in dimension......

    just so happens i have a pair of tuned 1050's that came offa blown 540 have brand new enderle linkage for them as well, they ran great. asking 1000.00 for the 2 fresh tuned dominator carbs and the linkage, shipping included

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    just sold those carbs and the bds blower set-up to a pb member earlier in the wk, sorry man.
    just find some good carbs, get a good vaccum test gauge and hook up to read vaccum under the carbs, but before the blower. get to cruise speeds and see what your vaccum is, buy powervalves that are 1-2sizes bigger so when you step into the throttle during cruise in enriches, plus when you're at wot, the pvalves will be fully open and not leaning out during wot hella lot easier than jacking with boost reference'n, and the fuel useage will be just as good.
