Summit Racing carburetors

Is anyone on here using these? I'm thinking of buying one of their 750s for my 466.
In a way, they remind me of the 4100 motorcraft. Just wondering if anyone else is using them.

To some i guess.

I think QFT's look much cooler, and i'm sure perform much better as well.

I'm not familiar w/them. But they may be ok for a street car. Summit's brand is usually decent parts, and they will stand behind them.

The best "bang for the buck" these days is a Proform carburetor ... it's a Quick Fuel without some of their adjustability; which just gets you in triuble if you don't know what you're doing.

You know Chinese people read from right to left?

So that tells me something about most of their products.

It's a "continuation" of a Holley 4010.

It has some added adjustability over the Ford or Holley. The booster cluster has some replaceable bleeds or jets for he accel pump and idle fuel. I would say it's a street carb for a mild build.

HEY, I resemble that remark.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?
