Not surprising. Changes in the airflow alter the air/fuel ratio.

Best to do the tuning with all equipment installed for the best results.

Sorry for the teaser. I took a short drive through the neighborhood, nothing over 35 and can't go out on the main roads as I don't have it insured yet. But driving through the neighborhood the carbs felt great, no dead spots in the low range, and can lug it in 3rd and go WOT and it responds nicely. Still have some other things to work on to make it driveable though.

3 Things:
1. Awesome job with this conversion.
2. Is that fuel hitting the camera then evaporating, If so Why? and good god get that fixed!
3. Still a little shacky at idle so a carb balance is needed.

2: Yes it is fuel, it seems to be quite normal for sidedraft carbs whether it be these motorcycle carbs or webers. My webers did this too. Take a look at this video


3: They are synced, thats just what the engine looks like at 850rpms with a k cam.

Nice.
Ditching the carbs, or.....

Did you pick that up from Impolvo? I didn't look at it in detail when I was there, but he had an engine/tranny in his shed when I was there last weekend.

Probably going to end up running the turbo motor. Every time I drive my friends 745 turbo wagon with a 16t I'm blown away by it and how much fun it is. So this carb setup may very well be up for sale soon.

I picked up this motor and tranny from a guy in Fayetnam for $50

holler.

I'm putting penta carbs on mine for the time being, I got a manifold and carbs for a reasonable price. Depending on what you end up wanting for the setup, I'll probably put your setup on there.

I'll go second dibs on the carb setup (depending on how much you are wanting out of it) if Hotdoggin is happy with his penta.
My K-jet isn't happy, so it is either a deep dive into K-jet troubleshooting/repair or carbs for me.

In either case, I'd love to hear some of the tech stuff you ran into with the project - ignition / fuel system changes, vacuum issues, etc.

I'm still waxing romantic about a set of Webers, but this is my DD not a show car.

My carb setup runs the stock ignition system. Harness gutted to the bare minimum of wires.

grrrrrrrr
I doubt I'll be able to make it out tomorrow, unless I can convince my wife that I (or we) need to go to Morrissville before noon.

I'll see if she's up for it - I know we have plans in the afternoon/evening for sure.

That is what I'm after. I want to go to the simpler side of the house, rather than more complicated.

I know that a full-boat LH2.2 or 2.4 setup would probably be less fiddly in the long run, I just hate the idea of adding complexity (wires, sensors, flywheel mods, boxes, etc - yuck).

Necro bump for selfish curiosity.
How's it going? Turbo engine swap done and old B21 gone?

I have a set of Philski's AQ151 carbs/manifold I'm considering putting on mine to get my poorly functioning K-Jet out of my life while I consider my options for a fun head/carb setup.

I'm just surprised that a set of carbs that are designed to feed a 1000cc engine are actually running on a 2300cc motor at high RPM's...
And to stop the fuel spray at WOT, velocity stacks...
