These are certainly in the ballpark. Emulsion tubes are probably OK. What jets do you have now, and what kind of car did the carb come off of?

No it's not sold yet, thanx 4 axing. Thought I had a nibble but am getting no reply to my voicemail messages. Oh well.... But the financial need is no longer there. Looking forward to playing with it in the snow down here; hope it snows A LOT, like a huge one (22"!!!) we had last year, over the President's Day holiday. I was stuck on duty (security guard) for 38 HOURS! Mega paycheck for that week, almost $1000 after taxes.

Lukr, another thing that could be causing the low MPG is the fuel pressure you are feeding it could be too high and is causing it to "dump" (pass fuel past the float needle valve and seat)
Might want to pull a plug or two and have a look.
How did you handle the return line to the tank?
Have you considered a FPR (Fuel Pressure Regulator)
Hope Tom will share what his final setting was.

I have a Spectre FPR p/n 2517 from Auto Zone $20.00. Adjustable from 1.5 to 3.5 Lbs. I have it set on the 4.5 notch right now. 11 settings, from .5 to 5.5, but not reflective of actual pressure. Seems to be what she likes.
Did a 60+ mile trip last night, ran good, and I didn't use as much gas as I had on previous trips with the Hitachi on. I still need to find some open stretch of road so as to do a proper plug cut run. Then I'll know if I have the gas flow set right.
Why is it, that when you breakdown, it seems like you're the only one on the road. But if you want a clear section of road to do some testing, everybody and their brother is on the road?.......
