    ok, ended up taking a 5/64ths bit to the bleeds and they're on the money runnin a 5 pvalve on frt and back, 88 jets in all 4 corners, float level dead nuts on made a world of difference, i think it's gonna turn the imp. more than it already has

    i think some my my issue was the rear pvalve being plugged. it was pulling to much fuel from the 3rd circuit and secondaries at part throttle. the pvalve reinstall alone cleaned it up quite a bit, then the air bleed enlarging steadly made it better till i found the right orifice hole size. it's tuff finding bits mark in anything other than fractions but the 5/64ths hole seems to be the sweet spot for me.

    Missing 8 third circuit air bleeds in my boat right now. I didn't have time to mess with it last year, but this year I will probably just go down in fuel restriction orifice size on the third circuit so I can put some bleed restriction back in it. But it did cure the 1/5 throttle "rev limiter" syndrome on mine. That and a little float adjustment.

    Drill sizes:
    #49=.073
    #48=.076
    5/64=.0781

    Edit:

    Upon measuring, passage size .118

    i checked at lunch to see what bleeds i had in mine, its got 63's in all 4 centers(the center bleed at each ventura is the 3rd circuit or intermediate right?). the allstate guy told me to pull them out completely and if that cured it (by leaning it out) to drill the bleeds to a .073 bit bit size, so i guess he wants me having 73 bleeds.

    Fyi

    i was thinking the same thing. just bring the a/f meter and drill to the lake
