Re: Rebuilt Carbs... How do I Tune and Balance them?

you need the carb balancing tool.Rafee has them for like 30 bucks plus your shipping.i saw a chart somewhere thats recommended jet sizes for a set elevation but I havent seen a chart like that in ages.

Re: 3.1 liter webber engine build

Re: Missing ATF O/T

Get a better trans for one:P i always thought Ford based trans are sorta weak.Dodge ones seem pretty sturdy. But the International motor probably wont bolt up to it
