    Do yourself a favor and send the carb to Nickerson Performance. No one knows Holley carbs better than this man. A Nickerson prepped Holley is light years away from a stocker, he makes his own metering blocks.

    When I bought my TG, it was jetted so rich, I was told that is was this way to be safe. It would foul plugs within the .10 mile no wake zone to the main lake...I sent all four carbs to Nickerson and it was spot on right out of the box. I can idle all day and no fouled plugs.

    Dean Nickerson has me for a customer for life!

    I guess it's the same thing this month for the Powerboat Mag, " My mailman must not be done reading it, because I haven't received it yet"

    Not sure yet. He was dead-on right about the float. I replaced the float and needles shortly after I wrote pb and it helped things dramatically. The problem has not gone away though. I'm seriously looking into replacing the carb and I'm working with Rum Runner off the board. He works for Barry Grant who also has a line of marine carbs. I'd rather not use Holley. It's a combination of personal opinion, experience and appearance. The big question has to do with the linkage. Teague said that the progressive linkage would open the secondaries sooner. BG says that it will open the secondaries later. We'll have to get that one straightened out before spending any green.
    Doug is pretty sharp on the carbs .He is hard to get a hold of somethimes .I have his carbs on the Boats blower motor , Chevelle and Camaro.Both cars have 2 BG fuel pumps each and BG Nitrous works kits also. I think on the marine carbs the only diff is it has the J tubes.

    Cord one linkage is longer than the other. one has a bend in it. Most motors can take 1.1 ratio .

    Boost makes up for Cubic Inchs

    The funny thing is that 2 years ago when I was first doing this, I asked about a 1:1 linkage. Was told at that time that it would not do much other than increase my part throttle fuel consumption.

    [B]Next thing you know she'll be asking you to buy a bigger, faster boat.

    The day that happens, the sun would have come up in the west, time will be running backwards, and I will definitely be in "the twilight zone".

    I beleive Troutly is also in the new Powerboat "Mailbag" section commenting on LOTO. I have to strongly agree with him on his opinion of the docks at Shooters, they are the pits!! Cord, I saw your letter in the Tech section so you'll get credit !! Steve
