Pictures #516  thru #524

"Old Guy Scott" uses two Holly 500 CFM circle track carbs. Overhauling them first Photo #516 he will use the large steel needle and seat photo #517. He says the neoprene tip needle won't hold up if you accidentally use fuel with alcohol added. In Photos #518 and #519 you see "Old Guy Scott" running and adjusting each carb using the circle track adapter shown. This is all done on a test mule engine before installing on the "Black Widow". The important float level adjustments, photo #520 were made on the test mule engine. The throttle linkage is handmade photos #521 thru #524, this is vintage 1950's.
