Default switching to alcohol

Do you still run the foam in the fuel cell and can I run the return to the other bung on the bottom of the cell?

no foam on cell , return has to be on top of fuel cell, alcohol doesnt like alot of timing , probably 28-33 degrees on a bbc depending on motor, start with a fat tune , and go down form there , its safer you may milk oil a little but its better than blowing it ...

I am running my first alky set-up this year, my only advice is go with a well known carb. builder "APD, Rupert" being the best in my opinion. Mine is a APD, I took it out of the box, bolted it on and never even adjusted the idle. After I fixed my car issues, it is DEADLY AND I RUN 4 RACES BEFORE OIL CHANGE, just cause I felt guilty. It still looked like new.
