Re: CAPAC READINGS WHILE DRIFTING WITH ENGINE OFF

Re: 318/392 Stroker Motors

I know you are not looking at overheating as an issue but the post above referring to a "hot spot" raises the question again - is it possible coolant isn't getting to that part of the engine? I recall that with engines on a slant, the fwd end doesn't get all the coolant it needs at times.

Re: Fuel System Restoration: Tanks to Carbs...

Assume you replaced the CG 11 filter at the mouth of some 4 bbl carbs. I don't think (not sure at all) whether Edelbrock uses those filters but the little buggers did exactly what you described to me sevl times (though at about 1800 rpm)
