Lol! My original thought was to ditch the Qjet as well and throw on a Holley I've got sitting around. But after several people mentioned that this setup will indeed be the best one - once its properly tuned - it just seemed like a good opportunity to learn something new and get over my fear of carburetors (and we all fear what we don't understand). While everything has been pretty much smooth sailing so far, due in large part to all the help from the members of this forum, I hit my first bump in the road with the power piston. But if anything makes me nervous now, it is definitely the tuning.

How many parts you got? I just may tackle another one lol!

Click on image for the site the image is from. Hobby shops also carry these small bits. The common sets range from #61 (0.039") to #80 (0.0135").
Sweet! I'm sure I can pick it up localy. Thank you for your continued help Cobalt!
