wellllll. as usual i'm the odd one in the bunch! i'm running an ac electric
pump in my bugeye and switch back and forth between a 40dcoe weber and the
"trick" set of su's. the weber does not flood with the ac pump but the su's
did. so i went with a pair of grose jets and new floats in the pair of
su's. have had no instance of flooding since. and honestly since the su's
have been sorted out i have left them on and boxed my weber up and stashed
on the shelf downstairs. the su's work just fine and i have no complaints
about their performance running hillclimbs. when i step on it ....it goes
and darn well too!
back to my top secret project!
