Chasing a ghost in a 350 SBC.

I read in one of your post about the trash you found in the 4150 carb. What type fuel filters are you using? Most manufacturers recommend a 100 micron filter at the tank. Also a 40 micron filter in the line up front. Another interesting thing I read the other day is not to use teflon tape on any gas or oil fittings. It said to use a paste type sealer with teflon in it. I used Permatex 59235 when rebuilding my engine last year. You have replaced everything in the ignition system and it hasn't fixed the problem yet. How about your fuel. Gas with 10% ethanol has a shelf life of about 3 months. The ethanol absorbs water from the atmosphere. I have heard of using a timing light to watch the gas as the carb squirts the gas. IDK but it is said you can see water in the gas. Here is the article (advertisement) i was reading. USA Fuel
