Hey guys, my motor is installed with trans and my carb is all set, now when I put a level across the top of my butterfly my motor leans back towards the rear about a good 1/2 inch, is this going to be o.k.? Dana
If I am reading your post correctly, the carb is level and the engine is tilted down at the rear. If this is the case that is 'normal' and will work fine. The carb mount on the intake manifold has a 3-4 degree forward angle built into it. When leveling the engine, place the level on the carb mount portion of the intake. Level everything from that point both front to rear and side to side. The object is to have the carb level, not the engine.
