Well here is an update to my 1914 carburetor adventure. I originally installed a single 40 IDF on my 1914 and I just couldn't get the carb to the drivable stage, It was just before Bug Jam so I put the dual Weber ICT's on to be able to drive the car to Dade City. It was way low on power but at least I could drive it, We then drove the Baja to Orlando for Jingle Bugs and got at least 25 mpg, but merging on the interstate was a challenge,once at highway speed 70+ the duals were just sipping the fuel. This weekend I took out the box with the single 40 and completely disassembled the carb " I could not believe the metal chips and pieces that were in every orifice and jet" When people tell you to strip down the brand new carb and clean it "LISTEN TO THEM". Any way I changed the mains to 150's, left the air correctors at 160, and installed 65 idles instead of the 60's. The float level was also found to be set at 14mm instead of 10 mm ,so double check the float level too. After putting the carb back together I installed the manifold and the carb, verified 3lbs of fuel pressure, and let it warm up to set the idle screws. This is what I found.

The idle is so much smoother, and the 110 cam can now be heard.

The black smoke when wrapping up the throttle is gone and the single is 10 times more responsive, the ICT's were way to small, even with the bigger jets.

The car starts so much easier now it's amazing.

When I test drove the car I also couldn't believe the difference the car spins the 31's tires at will now, and pulls like a raped date.

Pleased is not the word for what I am right now, "I forgot to mention This is with the cheap EMPI HPMX 40 kit" Can't explain it but the set up sure works with my 1914".

I'm sure the mileage will be less, but I wont mind going to Orlando and back on 5 Gallons or less fuel.

I'm a happy camper!!! cheers cheers cheers
