    Any idea what size carbs these are, and can you tell if this intake is a cJ port by the picture?

    Hey Randy, I added as much possible info as I could to my thread "Help Choosing A Camshaft!!!" Hopefully this helps and you can help me out too. Thanks bud!

    Randy, I need a set of cam bearings you mentioned in a previous post. I need one wide one for the front and standard for the other four. And I need to know how to pay you.
    I am in Saint George Utah.

    I use a small drill mindex from a 360 drill to a #80 drill and find out what size it is ... then I go 2 or 3 though larger.

    Randy, you had mentioned this:

    "Down low with the lean response is simply that the off-idle system is not rich enough and opening the idle feed restriction about 2 or 3 thou usually cures the problem." in this thread about my edelbrock carb.


    Do you happen to know what size drill bit I should use for this? I do not have the means to measure what's there, nor do I have the means to figure out what size bit would be 2 or 3 thou larger. Richening it way up really woke it up and I may try hitting the idle feed restrictions w/ a drill bit for one last shot at it. I appreciate the help for sure.

    Thanks for all the good advise with my engine. Who do I talk to about grinding my camshaft and how do I get the wheels turning on it? thanks! Josh
