    Predator carb?

    Everyone on this site should pat themselves on the back. I am always impressed with the knowledge and attitudes on this site. I have a predator without the idle circuits. Don't laugh, I know it is ancient but it interests me. I have a 3000 lb Nova with a high comp 427, 4200 stall, 3.89gears. How would it work? Thanks!!

    I really want to know about the predator carb. also!! sorry about not helping. Seems like the carb would be perfect on any engine in theory. It gives it the right amount of gas at all times, seems too good to be true.

    Somebody, please help.

    Just thought I'd chime in on this one. I used to take care of the bulletin board for Dale Barlet (he owns Predator), and the majority of his tech calls and posts. Haven't done that in a while, although a couple of years ago he offered the company to me. I just didn't have the capital to do the deal..........Sucks because it was a smoking deal and included a bunch of CNC machines.............Anyway, pm me and I'll help you out all I can. I'd do it now, but only have a few minutes before I'm off to Denver for the day. (I live in Steamboat Springs) I'll post on the forum as well, after I've helped you out. Easier for me that way, I'll just cut and paste. You can email me too if you choose: racerx111us@yahoo.com

    It was the only carb the original BIGFOOT would use and he kicked butt with it for many years.
    I was always under the impression it was more of a torque carb, not much top end. Cp

    Thanks, everyone! What little research I have done they work on a variable venturi principle. Idea is great but I cannot find anyone in my area who has run one.
