Okay, all you experts can wake up now!

And this concludes our lessons for the day...
Nicely done!

Why don't you get one off those angled PCV's, then you tubing is long enough, and it looks way better.

Wonder how long it will be before Scott posts a HELP thread..."Clay's Jeep feels sluggish, like it's not getting enough air or fuel or something"

Check your 7, I pretty certain the PCV goes in the front of the cover. And
X2 on the 90 degree one.

I'm guessing Dave means the location of the PVC nipple on the carb, unless I missed something somewhere.

Scott, post a picture of the carb showing the bottom, Like this.

My pen is pointing to where the suction should come from for the PCV valve.

The reason for the picture was to make sure of full manifold vacuum. My Motorcraft carb is a little different.

You must have one of those walmart thermometers. Made in china!

I'm thinking we have the same carb/vacuum result, don't we? Surprising the differences in the carbs. I thought yours was something different than a 2100!

No WM thermometer. It's called a Hi/Lo thermometer. It records the hottest and coldest temps over a period of time. Reading the bottom of the blue indicator tells you what the hottest/coldest temp was, but I haven't reset it since last summer. It's getting close!

I was thinking I would, almost for sure, be back on here asking performance questions. The towel is designed to keep Clay from flying off the track! You got me on that one!

I thought that was the mask that Beth and Scott should have been wearing when they painted. And Scott was confused. Or, he wanted to ensure clean air going into Clays engine, in case anyone was painting nearby.

Im at work, i'm not getting paid enough to catch everything,

Yes SCott, big difference between the 2 carbs.

You should get full manifold vac where you tapped that. When I ran a MC2100 I tapped the adapter plate to achieve the same thing. I think you want to plug this hole. If I remember correctly it goes to the choke and can be the source of a leak.

Clay's carb still has the auto choke on it... shouldn't create a leak. Mine, on the other hand, did leak cause I removed the choke. Had to plug it, but I did so from the outside. Didn't know that hole was there. Thanks, Paul.
