  2. What size are those Winfields? When I ran 2 B's on my A engine. 213 CI I found that it ran best with the intermediate needles set at 27 or 28 clicks, with the BB's on a 229 C I engine the intermediates were set at 31 to 33 . The first was with a SU1R the second engine has a SUIA grind I think the current set up with C's is close to the BB's. Prolly talking apples and oranges here but I just thought to pass it on.

    Thanks for the info! I believe they are C's. The Engine belongs to Scott Hills, I'm not sure if you know him, so all the tunning will be left up to him, but I'll pass on the info! I'll see if I can find all the specs on the engine for ya.....

    "Land o' Goshen, Martha...That rig's 'suped-up'!"
    Clear revs, lotsa RPM... Snappy!
