Re: [DML] Contemplating a Carb Swap

So now your reason to put a carburetor on was because you did not have time to install the K-Jet? Do you have the time now? As for not having injector ports, since when did a little minor modification stop you! If you can make an adapter plate for a carburetor you can drill a few holes. I have no problem with you modifying your car. It is when you make changes to it and then proclaim the car was built like a piece of sh-t and your changes improved it. And now everyone should do it too! Everyone on this Forum tries their best to contribute advice. We don't always get it right but there is a self-correcting feature to this, eventually it comes out right. Now that you know K-Jet so well maybe you can "improve" that without having to resort to removing it.

- My engine showed up with a propane carb sitting on top. The most logical thing from me to do was fabricate an adapter plate to accept a gasoline carb. Even so I still cut the total installation time very close -- less than 24 hours before hitting the road.
