I have heard of Carbs coming brand new with metal shavings in them...I'd take it apart and clean and check everything.

NEW UP DATE..on the carb you could not see the idle air slots from the bottom,when u turned it upside down, SOO we crank the idle screws up till we could, then adjusted the Acc pumps, had to bend them just a little, but it fired right up and idled,,but still gonna send it off to get set up for our motor,,

So much for being consistent.

it was looking good to me, going faster every time down the track.its gotta level out some'where, and its the first time its been on alky, and only his 5th full power pass. sooo it looked good to us, and the mph was all about the same,

Probly weather, it was kinda warm today, then it was getting cooler all evening, and the motor only has about 7 pass's on it,

How are the rpms with those low gears? I think those 1/8 times are slow for your set up. What heads are on this bbc?

I was just razing you..lol

You might be on the fat side if it picks up in cooler weather, I run mine as lean as I can.
