    FUEL SPLASH

    WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF FUEL COMING OUT OF THE TUBES ON THE CARB WHEN LEAVING THE STARTING LINE AND CHOKING MY MOTOR FOR A SPLIT SECOND?IS THAT WHY I SEE SOME CARBS WITH A PIECE OF RUBBER TUBE GOING FROM ONE TO THE OTHER.

    Chances can be very good. That is exactly why it is done.

    Just make sure you have it vented on the top somewhere, notch the hose or put a TEE in it.

    I've personally never had an issue with mine doing it - I run my bowl level(s) on the lower side of full just for that reason plus my vent tubes are short.

    yes, I didnt realize it was your car that wasn't idling in the other thread. I think your problem is your still to lean at idle. Do you have removable air bleeds?
