Hello guys, my engine specs are 292 cam, head porting (40mm intake, 38mm exhaust), engine has been rebuilt, it has a custom exhaust header and I'm currently running on 34mm main chokes. I know you guys have way more expertise than me, so I'll appreciate your comments!

I just dug into my points and condenser. Found the points were at about .024" instead of .016". Fixed that and set the timing. 

You are way ahead of me. I just want to keep the thing running!

Regards, Ray

Keep up the good work Ray, I think this afternoon after hours of trial and error I found a stable baseline, however sometimes when I hit the gas too fast the engine starves, does anybody know the reason for this? I have to accelerate slowly to avoid this.

My car suffers from the same thing, too much throttle at lower rpm and it boggs.

We had this problem with the Corvair 140's. That car had four carbs, two primarys and two secondaries.

The linkage didn't open the secondaries until you passed about 2/3 pedal travel. 

We solved the bogging problem with strong springs on the secondaries so you could feel in the pedal when you were about to start opening them.

Regards, Ray
