Can anyone give me a source to get a different carb that will work right outta the box and fit my 1 barrel intake? I am getting pretty well fed up with what I have and feel a little screwed.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dave
That's the setup I have on my 81 with a 1200 motor. I did have to adjust the jet sizes a little to fine tune the carb.

Work right out of the box... I don't think there is anything like that, but rather minor adjustments until you get something you are happy with.

Can you tell me the jet sizes you used? Maybe that will be my next step. Thanks for the reply. Dave

Sure...

The idle jet came stock at .55mm but it was idling too rich. It is currently approximately 0.30mm. Approximately because I cannot be sure the hole didn't elongate as I drilled it out. I soldered the jet and then increased the size of the jet until I was happy with the idle.

The main jet is a 1.35. Stock was 1.275. I bought a few different sizes and kept increasing the size until I like the acceleration. It takes patience because you also need to contend with the acceleration pump dumping fuel into the carb under heavy acceleration. Turn that back to the lowest setting and get everything running good, then fine tune from there.

your link did not work, is it "Open to the Public" ??

I use www.Imgbox.com a lot, it gives Full Screen displays of what you upload to it.

here are some pictures of my backyard patio
