So im sure most of you know i got my boat running, its running really well actually except for a few small hickups.
Ive made a few straight header passes on the water and even cruised about 2500-3k rpm with no water (had valve off on accident) I notice my headers are glowing at the water inlet lines on the bend and the head right at exhaust port has changed color a small amount.
Im running 2 edelbrock 750 carbs right outa the box stock configuration. running 2 full turns out on the idle mixture screws.
What causes a hot or glowing header?? lean condition, timing, im at a loss. never seen this before on any application. I wouldnt think im lean, ive got alota fuel pumpin...
Right now im at 30* total at 3k rpm and about 16 at idle 900-1000 rpm. The olds guys on realoldspower.com say i can go 36 total but im not to keen on that.
opinions, im all ears guys.
