I've looked at a few self alignment tool sets over time. Didn't get one.....yet.

If you would buy one of those speed shop magnetic base alignment tools, you will be able to align any and all car from now on. Very simple to use. Even a Vega owner could do it. At about $100 a real good tool to have.

The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.

Holley 5200 metric threaded jets
« on: July 27, 2009, 07:53:46 PM »
Does anyone know where I can get hold of the early metric threaded main jets for the Holley 5200 carbs?

My motor, a 2.3 needs a larger secondary main jet.

thanks   Fred

Use the old Esslinger trick of putting the stock secondary jet in the primary side, then drill the primary jet 2 # sizes larger than the original secondary size. I ran my 2000cc this way for years with much better performance. You'll just have to get an index of numbered bits. JT

Got over the problem.

As the main jets are metric then the the two jets are numbered 142 and a 132. This means for instance that a 142 is in fact 1.42 millimeters in diameter. I bought a set of numbered drills from Harbor Freight, printed out a coupon from their web site and got all 60 drills for only $9.99.

I sized up the drills in the jets and carefully drilled just one out using the next size up drill.  I put the undrilled jet back in the primary side, the 142, and drilled the 132 with a drill that measured 1.47 millimeters and put it in the secondary.

The car always ran well low down but nesded more gas when the revs got up.

Seems a bit better.

Fred

Tap out the carb body and use Holley jets.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
