Converting Gas Carb to Alky

I have a BG Demon Carb that is setup for gas. What is involved in converting it over to alcohol?

gas to alky

You will have to change all gaskets for starters,then modify the metering blocks,the needle and seat,the jets about 55% bigger I'm sure theres more,but if you contact BG they'll be more than happy to give you all the mods necessary

Depending upon what carburetor model and size you have we do offer some conversion kits which include the parts needed to make this swap. These kits have the correct alcohol metering block and boosters included with them.
