Good deal, glad to hear you got her fixed. I don't know how long this has been going on but, might want to think about changing the oil. Raw gas dripping down the intake finds it's way into the oil pan, contaminating the oil.
I've heard a lot about "vacuum controlled fuel pressure regulators" That reduce pressure at idle (high vacuum) and cruise and increase pressure under load and WOT (low vacuum) mostly from guy's with TBI and port injection. Not sure about carbs though. I'm curios about what you got as I'm looking to upgrade my fuel pump to electric from manual to my 600 CFM but don't want to overwhelm it with too much pressure. Can you tell me what kind AZ sells and the cost?
ps; DAM TECHINSPECTOR IS GOOD, AIN'T HE?
Sometimes I think he has a crystal ball or something.
