I just picked up the hard line and fittings to plumb in the manual pump. I already had a manual fuel pump and rod. I'll get on this this afternoon and hopefully get it going today.

In tank fuel pump is deleted and the hardline is made. I still need to secure the hardline to the frame but it is put in place. The manual pump is installed and plumbed up to the carb. It's got 6psi at the carb and is running pretty good without any tuning on it, still rich but I don't think it's as bad. Once I get the new timing light in I'll be able to get it tuned and hopefully it isn't rich like it was.

Got the timing light in, it likes 23 intial and 37 total. Still idling a little rich but not as bad. Weird thing, the fuel pressure gauge was reading 6-7 psi the other day and now it's reading about 4 but is running good at idle, i think the pressure goes up to 5 1/2 when it's at 3000 rpm.

If it is a liquid filled gauge, especially those little 1-1/2" diameter models, they will only read correct when cold...as they heat up under the hood, the pressure reading will drop even though the fuel pressure is actually still the same. The expanding glycol fluid inside the gauge presses the opposite way on the gauge bourbon tube mechanism.

Yeah it's the little one. Makes since though. Thanks

Made a harsh decision after doing a bunch of reading, i decided the cam was not going to work for what i wanted, it's just way too big. So i put the entire setup for sale, well it sold and now i have ordered a cam from summit racing, it's their 1106 cam and lifters. I know it's not a roller cam but I'm not worried about that anymore, i want to be able to drive this thing. It should all be here next week sometime and i hope to get it back together by next weekend. I'll definitely post if it changed my problem, I'm very confident that it will. The old cam if i ran the numbers right had 69 valve overlap, if that's the case, that's why I was having the rich at idle problems. The new cam still has a little overlap but only 10.

Just figured I would let y'all know I got the cam in and the engine seems a lot happier. It sounds awesome and the timing is set at 14 btdc intial and the full advance is like 32 btdc. I still need to tune the carb it stumbles when you hit the gas. I ordered accelerator pump cam kit and a new nozzle.
