Last run

Another weekend of spirited driving through the beautiful autumn countryside lays behind the 'Cuda. Unfortunately I left my camera at home so you will not be able to enjoy the images imprinted in my memory.

This was the last outing for the season, over the winter I will try to make further improvements to the 'Cuda to make it better yet....stay posted!

A new addition to the toolbox. A gearwrench set from Kamasa. I already had a metric set and really love to work with it so I picked up a seven piece SAE spec set as well.

More carb work

More fiddling with the carb. Since the 'Cuda was still running a little rich, I'm now trying out different jet sizes. Changed from 69 to 64 on the 600 cfm Holley and will see how the effects are.

Slick wheel

I fitted  a 15X8 inch Aero wheel  for test purposes ...including a bada** looking nascar slick!

Carb swap

I've been fiddling with the carb for quite some time. The original carb has the engine running fine but it's consuming irrational amounts of fuel, soiling up the rear of the car in the process. I sourced a replacement, a 600cfm Holley from Germany to see if things get better. The carb is really almost the same as the original Holley, safe for the electric choke.
