I have been told that Tillotson (pot metal) carbs help to reduce vapor lock. Don't know if this is true.

Vapor-Lock Up-Dat
Rebuilted Carburator. Rebuilt Distrubtor. Replaced Coil. Installed 3rd Ground Cable.
Shorten/Insullated Fuel Line. Compression Cked: 61 +/- 1. Vacuum Cked: Steady 17. Drain/Refuel Tank.



It's when restarted from fresh and installed another Carburator, improvements began, and so we began removing Close Pins(not really). Still more testing/driving before deciding if successfull.
Club Mechanic agrees to be repaid for his efforts in a pallet of Florida Toilet Paper.
Thanks Guys
