    Question $ 120 investment or money burned ?

    Well, thanks to Joe Shelfo I either have a great $120 investment or I just burned some meal money;





    Two Predator carbs for next to nothing, I counldn't say no. Now I just need to clean them up. Who knows maybe they'll show up on the T/R on the dyno one day after a clean-up and rebuild

    I would say it is an investment. Because if you dicide to sell them, I buy em. Heard they don't work well on Fords tough

    you are right tho' I've seen 3 of 'em inline a couple of times- they're supposedly only supposed to flow what the engine demands, so 2 will
    be 1860cfm capable- by looking at sleeper's stuff tho' he could prob.

    Well don't think I wouldn't:



    Which way is the float bowl supposed to face ? Or better yet does it make a difference in what direction the throttle doors are facing?

    got to go out to dinner...talk later...... Jon

    Foward facing float bowl. Always. Unless its a dial plane and it proves to be better. Single planes and TR almost always run better with the float bowl foward. And they are really susceptible to the cam being uncovered when it faces backwards.

    I hear ya. Sometime down the road hopefully put them on something. They went from Joe's shelf to mine. Maybe a 514" Ford out of space parts.
