    a Carb. to run better off camber?

    I am going to re-build it and was wondering if there are anything I can do? The two things my truck are missing that I would like are..... FI and a rock box but if I can get my carb. tuned in and can get away with out FI, I am one step closer to a rock box.

    Thanks,
    -Al

    Stock carb right???

    lower the fuel level a bit, make sure that your fuel pressure is regulated well.

    Honestly, with a good rebuild and a couple of tweaks (hopefully Mark or Jim will pipe in here with the specifics) you shoudl not really need FI.

    Course.. FI is nice..

    Can you run a regulator on a stock carb and knock it down? I had an adjustable regulator when I was using an elec fuel pump, except I installed it backwards and it blew up.

    I've got one of the 203 adapters, and I have a 203 coming. all I need is the 2nd adapter!

    Just so you know,

    Dennie Mann is looking at getting rid of his whole set up. 4 speed / 203 / split case. As a package.

    Yulp its a stock carb. Would I just lower the fuel level for just offroading or for all the time?

    I was planning on a toybox...got a savings account made for it...

    the 203 isnt a bad Idea but dont both adapters come to like 1100 bucks then ya still have to get the 203?

    the toy box i think is just slightly more expensive...

    Andre (dieselcruiser) was going to send me a 203 for shipping....


    Might want to hit him up..



    I bought my 203 from WMS for $100
    gear reduction only and all celaned up and ready to go.. Can't wait till it gets here.

    I think Denny wanted like $1100 for the complete setup.
    Then you could sell your 4 speed and tcase..

    I know the toy box would put me in at 173:1 what would the 203 put me in at? I dont really know a whole lot about it. Just wondering but how much changes in the drive line, because I know the toy box moves things by about 7 inches..
