    Thanks All , btw Rightytighty I hope you get that paddling issue worked out. Would I be silly to try to feed a 557 bbc with a 4150? I supose that should be another thread. Are most/all blow through deals 4150's or????

    Sorry-- Been at the lake since Thursday, just saw this thread. I've been very happy w/ my Dom. Never 1 bobble. Runs great at idle/off idle and when I wack it. I'm sure it's not "optimized", but It's all good. Only thing I've done is re-jet (88's squared stock). I'm 90 primary, 92 secondaries.

    The fuel mileage takes some getting used to.. If I stay in the primaries, it gets waaay better mileage than our rollcage boat. Primaries run up to almost 40 mph in my boat. It's awesome. Kinda lulls you into a false sense of security somehow.. Once I get into the secondaries, you better not be far from a fuel dock though.. Geez.. I'm not complaining, other than I get forgetful.. It seems to get great mileage, then I have a few buddies come up and want to go for a ride and the next thing I know (It seems anyway), I'm paddling back to the docks.. Weird really.

    You can buy the linkage and change it yourself. It's a little involved, but I'm sure you could handle it. (Hope I'm not telling you something you already know)

Runs good top end but seems a bit sluggish out of the hole. It idles rich. In another thread some one said to remove the intermediate air bleed all together. Has anyone tried this.

    yeah, been there, tried that. plugs got to looking lean as the summer got hotter, so i drilled them to a 78 size(don't remember orifice size) and put them back in, plugs looked better at wot passes. i don't think the 3rd circuit even operates at idle rpms, at least mine doesnt seem too.

    It,s hard sometimes, no 2 engines are the same. I still have to tell myself to only change one thing at a time. It,s all in the fine tuning.

    I put the 1.0 pv in because the idle vacuum was around 2 inches and went with Holley's info on pv. I bought the carb new and it came with 6.5 in both ends. I've played around with some things and got the vacuum up to 4 inches. Thinking of bumping it up or taking it out also. I'm here looking for info so I can make this thing work better. Reading this stuff, I've learned alot.

    If I remember corectly yes. You said you had a 1.0 pv in it. Just a heads up but if you run a pv that is to low in size it will take a bit for it to open. ie lazy to get going. This is a roundy round trick so they will stay glued comming out of the corner.

    I have had best luck running these squared (both ends the same) One way to put it is that they are not completly like a 4150 they are more like running 2 two barrel carbs if that makes sense.
