Default Carb Update

Well time for an update. Finally found some time to finish my carb project. Broke em down, cleaned, metal primed and sprayed with high temp engine enamel which is resistant to oil and fuel. Also installed Stage 1 jets and shimmed needles to add more mid range power. Have one more addition but waiting for shipment. Took me over 3 hours just to mask for painting.

Before:







After:
