Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

I had that float bowl off, and the inlet float valve seat out, and when I put it back together, for some reason the seat ended up a little further back up in there than it was, which pushed the float down a little more than it was before when the fuel needle was closed. So the fuel level in the bowl...

Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

As I was only getting about a pint per minute (450 ml/min.) before it goes through the float valve, I'd bet it's less than that at the float bowl! No wonders it feels starved when I get to higher load levels....
Yup, I'm convinced I need to improve that fuel supply....

Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

I'll try to figure mine out, interesting read, they do point out that the wheel diameter to disk rotor diameter also figures into it, I hadn't thought about that. 10" effective pad contact rotor diameter vs a 21" wheel, probably more like 24" at the road surface.... Heck of a mechanical advantage fo...

Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

Great comment! I don't know the mc size, it was one I had on the shelf from a previous project, will see if there's a way I can check out the piston size without having to pull it apart, but I will if I have to. I'm aware of smaller bore mc's give more travel to pressurize the system but do so with ...

Re: 62 Chopped FL Rebuild

I need to find more aggressive front brake pads, if I can't, I need to learn how to modify the pads I have to be more aggressive. Ah ha, a future worthy project. Gee, I'm sure glad I do not have enough projects to keep me busy.... (somebody shoot me....)
