    You could have a sensor in the other bank with a toggle switch

    Thats what i was thinking about as i was tuning my new carb, the sensor is in bank one, so it may be reading 12.5:1 on that bank but what is bank 2? This is where you either add another sensor for that side or just tune it to run the best ive learned.

    If your AFR gauge is reading 8 cylinders then it's going to be an iffy average.

    I went from 650 Speed Demon VS to a 750 Speed Demon VS.
    Stripped out two helicoils for the front float bowl, you canīt get a replacement body so I
    tried to order another 750, none available, so I went over the top and bought a 750 Screamin Demon VS no choke.
    Itīs taken some time to tune but I really like it.
    It likes to idle around 12.1 but I have to lean it a tad for the yearly inspection, which it doesnīt like too much.
    Starts first time too.

    Bigger...ish is better.
    Right in, i appreciate it. Ive also found that ya have to find a happy medium with how it runs and the afr #'s. If ya shoot for the perfect numbers youll pull your hair out trying..

    Aight guys, i linstalled a 750 vac sec prof form carb.. This thing has a WAY better fuel curve everywhere excpt idle.. Im super happy that i made the switch, the 670 brawler was actually too rich everywhere.. One question, do yall thi k 12.6 afr is too rich at idle?? Ive tried all the way up to 13.6 and it just starts running rough‍♂️ Its rich at idle as i can smell it, but it idles decent at the richer setting.

In this case, give it a new name. I see the advertisements where they are putting regular holley metering plates on it, which is why I do not know if they have it fixed or not, but I got one with a week of running on it if I decide to give it another shot.

    If the engine builder suggests it, he can put it on and tune it to your liking I guess, but there is definitely going to be one of low, midrange or top end that you wont like.
    Yea man, ive tuned thid thing till im blue in the face. Ive tuned alot of holly style carbs and this one has been the hardest. Its ok though, i just ordered a Fst 750 vs carb and ill see how it is..

    Oh...you want the numbers to look good, in addition to having it run good.

    I settle for running good.

    This carb had 680 stamped on the main body, and everything else looks identical to a 680 hr i had. With that said, this has been the hardest carb ive ever had to tune, not really sure why either. The main issue was aean spike on transfer at light throttle. If i richened it up to eliminate the spike, then it was way too rich. After countless attempts, i finally drilled the primary blades, and so far its helped. Now i can open the mixture screws more to eliminate the spike, and idle afr is now 13.3, which it use to be 12.3 at idle. Idk, its been a pita for sure..

    Cool, yea the engine builder recommended the brawler 670, but he also sells those so..I seen an episode of Engine masters and the engine was really similar to mine, and the 750 did the best. I also talked to a friend thats been building hotrods longer than ive been alive and he said the same, the 670 is too small, said to get a 750vs for the street or a 750dp if i race alot(which i dont).. Reason i ask is im really interested in the new FST 750vs carbs..
