Make sure the vacuum advance hose is off and the port is plugged when you set the timing.

I agree with all of that but the bit about the two-stage/phase pump. When I bought my compressor I talked to a tech at Eagle Air. I'd settled on a two-stage pump and he quickly asked what I'd be...

I'm not a Holley fan as I find the Eddy carbs to be more set-and-forget, so I'd probably do the 650 CFM Eddy Thunder carb. And, the Eddy intake as well - especially if your friend is an Eddy dealer....

Welcome to FTE! This is the place to be!

The question you need to answer before choosing the carb is how wild you will go with the build. That will determine how much carb you need. For instance,...

Ok, I'll try the muffs I have for NASCAR next time I blast. Oh, and I'll keep my mouth shut about it. Mums the word. }>

That's a pretty bad break. I'm not sure how best to fix it, but maybe replacing the frame would be the best.

Having said that, it isn't unusual for these frames to break. IMHO, all the...

I'm a bit lost. If the above is a reasonable description of the problem then I think your carb is too lean. IOW, that you do not have a fuel pump or ignition problem. And, on top of that you have...
