    • Yeah bro, I did use a high temp paint . VHT Engine Enamels SP129 to be exact. But during break in I was sitting behind the wheel watching the gauges and my son who was 8 or 9 at the time was sitting about 8' away in front watching for leaks and got distracted by a butterfly or god knows what. By the time I seen smoke, shut her down and got out it was already too late. Turns out the petcock on the radiator was wide open. My fault, guess it was clogged and blew out when it got hot. But its looked like crap ever since. Dremel is a great idea, I also planned on using an air scaler. Justa didn't know if yall might have a new trick . So, you think 2200 should be ok? Yeah, I was going to wait until the DC got closer to mention it to yall. But I was in Novi last week for a Dr appt (justa a quick overnight trip) and reserved room already. Lord willing and the creeks don't rise my son and I will be there in August bro.
    • I agree. I have always adjusted my idle mixture just as you described, but have never bothered with vacuum readings. I reckon I will always know when there is a vacuum leak - lots of experience there. I figure that when you're fiddling with the idle mixture, the engine will be happiest when it's idling at it's highest. After Wrongway suggested to Kiwi about purchasing an AVS2, I had a look around. They're not cheap (what is anymore?) and Edelbrock is certainly a respected name but those carbs aren't without their issues, according to a 'AVS2 problems' search on the net. I also like how the AVS is based on a Carter - high praise indeed. I'm gonna stick with the ol' Carter and will let you know what happens. Will try and send it off tomorrow.
    • Thats an awesome piece of info Justa!
