I MADE UP A 1\2 INCH CARB SPACER CUT A SPIRAL IN IT TO HELP ATOMIZE THE FUEL MIXTURE. WORKED GREAT!!! DID A PLUG TEST AND NOW RUNNING A LITTLE LEAN HAD TO RE JET. FROM A 170 TO 180 MAIN. A CHEAP PERFORMANCE ADD ON ONLY TOKE A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR TO MAKE UP, AND AN HOUR TO INSTALL TOO. GREAT FOR THAT ADDED BOTTOM END NEEDED...

I REMOVE MY CARB BOOT AND MARKED IT OUT ON A PIECE OF 1/2 INCH ALUMINUM THAT I GOT FROM A LOCAL MACHINE SHOP. HOLE SAWED TWO HOLES SIDE BY SIDE LITTLE BY LITTLE SO THAT THE TWO HOLE WERE CUT OUT AT THE SAME TIME IT HAS AN OVAL HOLE. ONCE I HAD THE HOLE MADE I TRIM IT UP. BY USING A DIE GRIND I SLOWLY MADE A SPIRAL STARTING AT THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM OF THE HOLE BORE. MADE THE SPIRAL ABOUT 3/16 DEEP. AND AN TRIMED THE EXTRA MATERIAL OF THE SQUARE BLOCK AND FILED IT DOWN TO MATCH THE INTAKE BOOT. GOT 1/2 INCH LONGER 8 X 1.25 ALLEN BOLTS. REMOVE THE FUEL TANK SO THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE TO UNDO EVERYTHING ON THE CARB TO ISTALL. THERE WAS ENOUGH ROOM TO PULL OUT OF THE WAY. I USE SOME 515 LOCITE GASKET MARKER TO THE ENGINE SIDE AND INSTALL THE SPACER BETWEEN THE BOOT. JUST REMEMBER RE JET CARB AS FAR AS PICTURE I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO THAT... I'M NOT A BIG COMPUTER GUY.
