    Good question. I found a website, but the last update was about a year ago. I'm going to email them to find out. But like I said, no plans for using it. It could be a good thing for a wfo application. I don't think it'd be appropriate for the street, however. Way oversized imho.

    Dug an old carburetor out of the shed today. A Predator. It'll fit on the Torquer manifold I'm going to use on the Whatever project 327, but probably not... it's rated to 900 cfm. Not really going to use it, just needed to get a couple of pictures of the thing. And I realized that it hasn't been used since the late 90s.

ID:	1329395 Just look at that barn door opening! As I recall, it idled okay on the 400 in Jim's hillclimb special, and throttle response was good. But it's strong suit was its ability to maintain a/f ratio climbing the mountain. Had 2 but when SCCA took over the Mt. Washington hillclimb the other one was relegated to the shelf. It was a methanol version. Unfortunately it wasn't pickled properly and residual methanol ate it. This one always had race gasoline, and was drained after each use.

    It might still work...but I don't have any plans for it.

    Crayon! They only give me one a day. And it's usually white, and the paper is white. So much white. White Christmas. White wedding... In the white room with black curtains... The white wizzard... white race cars...

    There, I got back around to cars. Always painted the 54s white. They could be fixed with rattle can paint. Appliance white. I'm told it's actually got a hint of blue to make it look whiter. When Dan and I went to his favorite automotive body work supply house in Ann Arbor, he said that fleet white would be the same. Too bad I didn't wait for Dan to spray it
    well everything was black and white in those days

    and to explain
