  1. I need a V8 (AKA Porsche thread)

    Definitely recommend getting an air fuel ratio gauge added if at all possible as this will help with watching the running of the car. Especially with a carb which is essentially a controlled fuel leak If you have some spare change (it's not cheap!) laying about, MSD Atomic EFI (Electric fuel injection) plus an MSD distributor would transform the car, they even make it look like there's still a carb on it. It's plug and play but it also self learns, so will adapt it's mapping to the car. If you have 15 minutes or so spare this video shows the differences quite well. Sorry for rambling, I had a 350 small block in my truck, so I've done days and days of research into them and now I don't have one On the motortrend on demand site there's loads of videos about/involving the 350 small block, if you want my login details, just ask.

    shoving some gaskets in isn't a big job, it will just be rather fiddly because of the space constraints.

    Shame about the focus in the back there

    Yeah, I think you're right, possibly you need red however blue held well on my small block chevy V8 and two motorbikes. With the chevy it's all I had and as it worked I never bought the correct stuff. That's probably not the correct attitude to have though

    surely even using locktite blue is an option?

    Absolutely in awe of your dedication and pursuit of perfection. Love this thread.

    I'm late to the party, however on the fuel front, modern fuel killed the mocal high pressure fuel lines I had in my truck after a year. After a bit of research I found that you can buy teflon lined fuel lines which are ok to run even pure ethanol on. Carburetors do not like our modern fuel though and all of the brass parts oxidise and you get a build up of green crusty stuff if the car stands too long. I envy most (ALL) of this build, especially the being able to buy decent fuel to put in it. I love the attention to detail you've put in.

    I've had them weekly for a month or so. I think they've killed themselves.

    Do you believe or not. You're muddying the waters now. You can't mention them like this. Also, singular, or plural? and lee and perrins or not?
