Oh, don't ever go full Mimken...

Speaking of carbs, I am such a nit picker, that I think I cannot deal with carbs much anymore. I have spent time in the 62 Valiant trying to get the Hly 500 to behave under all conditions, and so I am constantly fiddling with it. Can't wait to get the new IR intake/TBs on there and megasquirt it. Can't beat carbs for simplicity, though.

Had a nice call from Mr. Mimken yesterday - golden.

Greg, I only recommend going Full Mimken for short bursts of time! Oh, and definitely not in front of the boss (work or home)! It does come in handy though :mrgreen:

Getting some work done on the mighty 1 bbl - It had some fuel starvation issues pretty consistently in the last 2 outings of autoX on Hard R Turns - Fuel Sloshing away from the one Jet(located on the right side in the fuel bowl) in this carb.

I built a small baffle that hopefully will help.

I tried to drive it to work today, but It wouldn't' start. Maybe I set the float level too High... Those floats must be touchy in regard to level changes. I will pull the plugs and see if I flooded it and will also make sure there is spark.. will double check carb float levels and reset to stock if needed.

Some pics of the mighty autocrossing 1 bbl...

Well the Baffle Idea in the BBS had me baffled.... ha.. no It did not work.
Took the car to the Salem, Va AutoX and Still had Fuel starvation / Bucking issues with the car in Hard R Hand Turns. It was a blast however seeing some Stout Corvairs and Mustang II tearin' up the cone course.

I also was able to do some mountain Driving with friends on the Back of the Dragon from Marion to Tazewell Va.... whatta Fun Road!
viewtopic.php?f=42&t=65306

I got Back home and last night the girls wanted to go to dinner and the fall weather was just right.. so a ~270 Mile Drive to Summit Racing in Tallmadge seemed appropriate. All interstates this time.
- Was able to procure some goodies for various projects including an aem 30-0300 and a Set of Enkei RPF01's for Grüne Hölle. We ate dinner near Kent State Univ, before heading home.

Image

Also Found a decent fix for my Smashed Driver's Side Door armrest. I did a pile driver move on it with my elbow at the autox Course in Virginia. It was toast.
Image

after I smashed it, I removed it from the door.
Image

Image

And Came up with a lighter more pliable alternative.. Dog Leash.
Image

I can still pull the door shut when needed.
Image


Future (Winter) Plans include:
-Building a Proper oil pan - I mean you can't go to moroso or canton or stefs for Slant 6 pans...
-Mounting the Falken Azenis's on the RPF01's
-Fitting the Fiberglass Hood
-Installing a proper engine / Intake / Exhaust with O2 Sensor
-Maybe fit up some better front Seats


Cheers, Greg

Woo, those have a lot of positive offset; about 17mm more than you need. Were you planning on running a spacer? 3797806535SP looks like a better fit.

When I put an 8 3/4 under the '66 Barracuda it was the slightly narrower '67 B-body axle and it fit well with 17x8" +30mm wheels with 235/40R17 tires. There was just a little more inboard clearance than outboard. Google Drive doesn't make image sharing that easy, but if you follow the links you'll see what I mean.

I double checked that the file permissions were set to public. Anyone else have a report?
