    Thanks for the pics @Moriarity. On your 4 barrel Holley what is the barb/hose fitting which comes out adjacent to the front fuel bowl? Not really familiar with 4 barrels and trying to use one to test run my Nailhead.

    It was good to finally meet @Moriarity and see some familiar faces.
    Yes it was smaller, but I think there was a less percentage of the brickabrack crap. In football you could call this a rebuilding year. With it being a totally new location, I'm sure the club will have learned a lot on what worked and want didnt.
    Assuming it continues, I will keep going.

    Are you talking about the chrome line that comes from both float bowls? That is simply a dual feed holley fuel line

    No @Moriarity, it's the fitting to the left of the RHS fuelbowl/carb body joint. I think it takes a 1/4" rubber hose.

    This one? Ported vacuum source if that's your preference for vacuum advance, etc. Some Holleys have a 1/8 pipe threaded hole there.

    That's the one!! Thanks for that @24riverview My carb has the 1/8' NPT tapped hole with a hose fitting screwed in there. No other fittings on the manifold so wondered where the vacuum for the distributor was coming from.
