Colder, normally, unless the plugs look really black. They should
ultimately have a sort-of wood color. If they are white they are too hot.

that would be a custom rod length. Oliver, Crower, and others will make it. But why not get a length that is more standard, like 6.800"?

Hi,
Anybody know the cc of a 68 302 2v head?

Also anybody belong to a good early Mustang performance list? I want to
modify my fastback for autocross and solo events and I am looking for
information.

Thanks.

I need to know a good way to adjust the fuel mixture on an Edelbrock 750
carb. Thanks in advance for the help.

Subject: FTE Perf - stupid question - Summit throttle return spring kit

I got a Summit throttle return spring kit a while back (P/N SUM-G1327),
and for the life of me, I can't figure out how to bolt it on. The
pieces look pretty good taking up space in my tool box :). Anyway, if
any of you know how this beast gets hooked up, please let me know.
BTW, my carb is a holley 1850, a 4160 model.

later

Jet and metering rod changes. Go to Edlebrock's site and you can print
out the owners manual. It contains all the combos for jets and metering
rods in a handy chart. I own most of the the jets and metering rods from
running various engine configurations but find the 750 pretty much plug
and play for a stock or mildly modified big block.
