Very good guess, I have never seen one but I imagine it does look very similar.

I hate to jump right in here but I am blown away that I would know this. It's a 1970 Plymouth Superbird. I am miles from a Mopar Dude but LOVE those cars and remember staring at that goofy mess once at a show.

I have to assume it's for a super rare vinyl top car? Or do others have it too?

Most jets are marked for flow.

Size doesn't necessarily equate to flow. Holley might sell you a 72 jet that measures 71 or 73- because its actual flow is closest to a 72.

Unmarked jets can sometimes be measured using a small numbered drill bit set using the butt end, not the fluted end, obviously.

The guy selling the torch tip cleaner as a jet cleaner is doing no one a favor- using that rough tool inside a jet orifice would ruin the flow through the jet.

You are correct, Brian. I'm no Mopar expert either, but I think all (except race) Superbirds had vinyl tops. They had to have a vinyl top to cover the edges of the special rear window adapter plug.



Good job, Brian. The floor is yours.....

Dan, I am going to give you this one even though I was looking for a little more, like the other two cars that used them, one of them being totally different than the others. You want bonus points?
