Ok I have a few metering block/ power valve questions.

What difference does a rear power valve make? I have a few carbs with and without them but don't really notice any difference. I understand how it works on vaccuum and all, but....


Whats the difference between front and rear metering blocks? I'm looking to make all 3 of my carbs about the setup but I don't have a block for the rear of one with a power valve. I have a front off a different carb... would it work?

The front block will have idle circuits which may be ok if you want four corner idle circuits,which are usually rare on dirt cars i beleive,the carb guys here will probably specify.
