Author Topic:   4412 fuel bowl question
posted August 07, 2003 03:06 PM
Ok, our engine builder (I have about 5% trust in this guy right now) looked at my Holley 4412 the other day and said that I had put the screw holding the float in wrong and it was blocking fuel flow into the bowl and probably causing the car to run lean. Unfortunately I was not there at the time and I don't have the carb in front of me, but I put it back in just as it came out and just how it said to in the rebuild kit. Is there more than one way this can go together? I am confused as to what he is even talking about. Also, this would not cause it to run lean per se would it? The only thing I could see that it would do is possibly not fill the bowl quite as quickly, and run it dry at the end of the straights, but that was obviously not happening, and the plugs look good. Anyone have any idea as to what he is talking about?

Not too sure how anything like that could happen. I think the 5% trust is warranted.
