    Interesting .. ive never heard of that.. Figured if i bought the "application specific" part it should work lol But the ones i ordered originally were just a piece of hose i bought and cut into sections https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CB23JAS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Im aware but the runners are not exactly round That and the studs/hardware are very close to the clamp so its even harder to get it to have a good bite

    well ive found a vacuum leak recently .. the boots i have that hold the intake together are leaking.. new boots come in today https://vibrantperformance.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=601 What is a good way to seal these to the intake itself? clamps are clearly going to be on there but should i use hair spray to get it to seal or something? Any old school tricks?
  6. well when i F&*^ my sister i do yell roll tide 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Havnt messed with the truck in a while.. i did how ever get a better sync tool to try and get everything closer.. also i think i may have figured out a remedy for the lean issue at transition. Im gonna get a bigger pump jet and see how that helps.. currently though if i let it sit and idle it almost loads up and if i give it to much gas leaving a light itll break up so im thinking its a rich miss.. its hard to tell cause idk what im doing lol but heres a video i took last night of the sync tool

    yah thats a little different then what i have.. i messed around and changed alot of things.. believe currently i have 150 mains, 180 air 45 pump, 55f8 idles and the newest emulsion tubes.. could be wrong... havnt messed with it much .. throttle cable messed up so im waiting on a new one

    good deal, i think im gonna go down to the 34mm chokes and see if that helps.. the issue im having is its leaning and poping right off idle .. like as soon as i crack the throttle

    found some interesting info out there may be helpfull in my case Hey... I just did the TWM DCOE 45 152 conversion.... I ended up with smaller chokes... I started with 36mm, moved to 30mm, then tried 32mm, and lastly 34mm...L24/E88 mild cam engine....best was 34mm... 145HP at 7k RPM30mm GREAT STREET chokes... smooth transistion to mains at <2kRPM32mm better performance... slight increase in peak HP smooth transition at 2.2k RPM34mm Track performance... slight increase again in peak HP@>RPM.. poor transistion at 2.8kRPM36mm POOR PERFORMANCE... huge hole in my HP graph... no change in peak HP.==============================================as you increase choke ID.. the entire system becomes less predictable...bigger chokes need bigger fuel jets... they also need larger air bleeds at high RPM... the bigger you go... the harder it is to get a good transition from low speed circuits to high speed circuits... and the transistion off idle becomes leaner and leaner...The 152, made in Spain versions of these carbys seem to be set up for larger displacment/higher vacuum engines than the early Italian versions. The DCOE 152 transition holes ahead of the idle port are quite different than in the earlier models. This may be why so many people report having a flat spot just off idle...in addition... the drilling of these holes was performed AFTER the installation of the throttle plates... if your carbys have had the plates removed then the holes may not all line up properly any more....Also.... the proper way to set idle speed is NOT with the "idle speed" screw... I know you are thinking... WTF.. that is why they put that screw there.... well... it is something that can be used to set idle speed... but there is another way to ensure that the transition holes are opening at the proper times.=======Set the throttle plates to just cover the first transition holes... then choose idle jets to control both fuel AND air flow into the idle circuit.... the air balance screws can then be used to set low-flowing throttle bores to match the higher flow bores... these air balance screws are unique to the DCOE152 series.. and they are very useful.... REMEMBER.. these screws should all initially be closed.. get the engine running well and then FINE tune the flow through a UNISYN meter using the airbleed balance screws on the low flow throats ONLY...if you are having trouble synchronizing the idle flow from carb to carb then check the linkages for binding.. .if you cant get a particular carb to flow the same on both bores... then check that the air bleeds are clean and unobstructed... or check compression on that cylinders involved...
