Wink Carb Riser Questions

Hi Friends...
Lovin my 47 Flattie. Here in So CA, I have some hills to climb when I'm out cruzin. NEED MORE POWER.

I'm totally stock, except for dual exaust. Found a 2" riser for my Ford 94 carb. It's all installed with nice Holly good flowing Air Cleaner. I thought maybe the better fuel mixing might give me that little more power I need.
IT DID NOT!

Motor seems to run smoother than ever, idles well. But, instead of waking up some sleeping ponies... now it's slower to accelerate. Runs smoother and seems to run easier, less RPMS for same speed near top end. Once I get going good on the flats.

Thinking that bigger jets might help. Any ideas? I think I running .051
I did have a carb heat transfer on hot days with draindown. It's gone.

Riser stays very cool.

If I just downshift, I can get up any hill, but that line of folks don't like it.

Mike
