The set-up I am using as i was told(sold)is from a 1400cc block.The carbs
are the OLD type(DCG-306W-5[ R & L ]).The manifold is a bit taller so I used
longer bolts,but it matched up fine.They are manual choke carbs(not enough
room between for auto-choke)so routing a cable is a must.I use the same
throttle cable,but moved the butt-clamp to the bell housing bolt.I had to
simplify vacuum lines as there is not a vacuum modulator.I had to build an
air box and route the pcv hoses.As for perfomance....wow what a differance.
My one-ton rust bucket accually likes hills,mud,and slush. It has a 3rd gear
pull from 15 to 65+(torque through horsepower)floored.I think the points keep the top RPMs down.As for your rebuild,use your existing carb. set-up for enginebreak-in.The duels let alot of air/fuel in quickly,thus stressing every nut holding the heads on.This could make for a long walk with a tight fresh block.
Also, ckeck your state smog rules,unless your '78 is age exempt.

I was Wonderin´ if a Dual Webers 32/36 Will be a Great idea, or if only with That, the Engine will Become a Huge Gas Eater?
Well... I suggest go Weber.
