Re: [T3] '68 SQ w/ dual carbs questions



Well.. you CAN always get the FI stuff and go back... but this CAN be a big
job too!

Id get a good set of Stock Solex's and use them... youll avoid ALOT of
hassle with messing with a carb that I dont believe will ever really be
right on a stock setup engine... the Webers usually overcarburate things and
the curve is wrong... MUCH easier setting up carbs that you know the correct
jetting for and are the correct carb for the car.
