    Man I love the street avenger carb. Had one on my 68 GTO back in the day. Just took it out of the box and installed and it ran like a dream. I would suggest you look at adding a fuel pressure regulator so you can set your pressure and the precise amount you need. Much cheaper than a new carb or fuel pump.

    I forgot to mention, this carburetor has been very good. Just started having trouble with leaking.

    I put the new fuel regulator on and it stopped the problem with the carb. But leaks bad around the regulator. I plan to check with the vendor I got it from to resolve this problem.

    Did you use teflon tape on the threads of all your connections?

    No, I was worried that the gas would eat it up. I'll give it a try. Thanks

    I'm still having issues with the carburetor. I'm getting too much fuel in the primary and secondary bowls. I remove the site plugs and shake the vehicle side to side. I then adjust the floats. Then there's the slight trickle, like it's supposed to be. In a few days I need to do it again. What is causing the bowls to fill without any float adjustment? Thanks in advance.

    Is it a possibility that your adjustments are moving out of adjustment again after setting them? Can you mark the positions on the carb and the top of the set screw and observe? Are you also setting the float adjustment with the engine running? (you should) Other than that, I would assume the floats are hanging up. Maybe its just time for a local carb shop to perform a teardown and rebuild?
