Over the course of my weekend in Bowling Green at the Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion I took more than 1500 photos of about as many cars. I was able to crawl all over them, look at details, and generally see who was doing what with their junk. Without a doubt the parts and pieces that were most widely used on the stuff at that race were Jiffy-Tite fittings. They were so plentiful that I literally started looking to see if they were on cars or not. The majority of the Jiffy-Tite equipped cars I saw were using them to connect the carb to the fuel lines. If you are a drag racer, you know that swapping carbs, pulling one off to be tuned, and even testing different carbs on the dyno are normal facts of life, so having the ability to do that without unleashing a tsunami of fuel onto a hot engine, or without having to screw with annoying AN fittings that you jacked up by using the wrong wrench on the day after you got them, is a huge bonus.
Jiffy-Tite offers their carb kits in a variety of sizes and configurations. We think that it is a must have upgrade for anyone out there running a carb on a motor that they like to tinker with. These fittings are on some of the highest level, heaviest duty race cars in the world. They have been beaten into submission 100-times over and not leaked a drop.

Dripping fuel, scarred up fittings and time-consuming wrenching can make installing a carburetor a real pain. Why make installing and testing more work than it has to be? The Jiffy-tite Quick-Connect Carburetor Kit saves time and makes changeovers a breeze. Unlike an old fashioned threaded fitting set-up, this innovative kit allows you to connect or disconnect the fuel line(s) in seconds with no tools. There’s absolutely no wrenching required for a high flow, 100% leak proof seal. To connect, simply pull the socket collar back and insert the male plug on the fuel line. Then release the collar.Just listen for the click and the carb is ready to go.Disconnect with a simple pull on the collar and the valve design keeps the fuel safe inside the line, and without having to drain your fuel bowl.
