Jooooooe Funny how sometimes the most obvious answer is the most over looked.

Roy Newton- exprotech Why don't you take a five gallon bucket and pour the fuel in. This is a case of over do for the street. Two 450s would be more like it.It just won't burn that much fuel driving around. ROY

Jooooooe Doug, do your carbs have electric chokes? If so you may need to lean out
the choke settings, your problem may be a matter of accumulation during
periods at idle. If you can't stand behind the car(at idle) without being
immediately fumed out then yes it still too rich.C'ya, Jooooooe

liquid_larry You didn't say whether thay are oil or fuel fouled.If its fuel go up a step at a time with plugs,don't make any big changes at one time. The dyno and the street are two different things and I would think you are rich at idle or plugs are too cold

Jooooooe What type of plugs are you running? You may require a hotter set, maybe R45's.

I have a 71 Corvette 327, blown, 6-71, with 2 holley 700 and msd ing. The motor was just redone. On the dyno the fuel mixture is right. In the car it fouls a set of plugs every 60 to 70 gallons. Is this common? Someone asked me the other day the same ??? Any ideas?? Thanks
