I already get 11mpg so how much worse can it get? Ultimately I'm thinking Holley 670vs or 750vs but for some reason everyone in the Portland area thinks those are worth $150-$200 all beat up. Seattle area has fresh rebuilt ones for that price but I'm leary of buying carbs sight unseen.
Mystery heads, mystery compression, doesn't matter what Carb, tired is better then broken, keep the tired motor,sort out the race car motor and install next summer
