the 2 biggest mistakes with Kadrons are

1) too much fuel pressure
2) accel pump nozzle too low, in venturi instead of above it. If it's too low it will syphon when you drive and you can't get it l ...

You don't take out the throttles and put those the brass barrel? Or is that the job for the new guy? Wink

Must be doing quite a few. What price do a pair fetch just as "cores"?

I thought I'd give a quick update on the project for those interested. We've been driving this car around for the past few months, and it came out really nice. It's super duper smooth around the stre ...

It is truly upsetting that one can try so hard to cause so much damage to another, especially when unjustified.

But wait....

You have a 304 degree duration Norris camshaft in that car? That's not supposed to work with Kadrons, according to all the pros. That's too much duration for Kads. And you have it on ...

Kadron's will let the car go down the road, but when I changed from Kad's to 44's on my built 1600 (110x1.25, 8.5:1, 40x35.5, 1 1/2") the difference was night and day. It was unfathomably smoot ...

Run Kadrons if you want. Don't listen to the guys that can't make it happen. Listen to the guys that can. Here's a 1679cc we built last summer. It made 99HP with full air cleaners (the old school ...

No. It's a press fit.

No. No. No.

SAE Gross (without belts, etc) was higher, but was phased out in the early 70's. SAE Net is approximately 1% (rounded off) lower.

I just figured it all out! Thanks Torb!

We've been measuring SAE horsepower, rather than using the DIN method, only with belt, headers, mufflers, etc.

If we use the DIN method instead, we just ...
