For M4MED quadrajet owners

I want to put this up for those of you that own M4MED quadrajets and are or want to rebuild it instead of swapping for one without the dual cap. accel. pump. Im sure you are familiar with Cliff Ruggles and his book, well he mentioned to me that at their shop they take the brass plug out of the middle casting and fill the void with lead or solder. This is a good trick, but i did this instead. I cut the bottom off the plug (about 1/4in or more from the bottom) and tapped the plunger and spring out with a small punch, then filled that plug with solder, which was a much smaller space to fill then the large hole in the carb mid section. Just put a small screw in the top where the hole is and unscrew it once you have it full of solder. (after it cools of course.) Im not saying my idea is anywhere near as good as Cliffs, being as how he has been doing this WAAYY longer than i have, i just thought this might be easier for some people like myself.
