I always wanted one to play with, it's clunky as hell and at the same time cool as hell. I remember seeing them mainly set up as dual's on high rise's at the strip when I was a young-in. I could care-less how it preforms some people here like em some don't. I'll just take it for it's worth and do what the older Rodders did; put one on a found out how it worked! That's the part of all this madness, to me, why we are here today. Ya'll veterans that got two cents to put in, here or there, this or that, it's all good! Just don't forget that the journey is part of the fun. So, smoke em if you got em. And I got one in mind that needs to find out.

That carb you have is an alcohol Predator!!! It has to be completely modified for gas! Kendig built alc. and gas predators! The big fuel bowl is standard on the alcy carbs Not many of those left alive the alcohol did havok with the carbs material ( corosion)!! The drain plug is to drain fuel out between runs because of water accumulation (alcy draws moisture like a sponge) and corrosion characteristics of alcy! I hope this helps you out?
