    So i just put the AEM AFR 30-0300 gauge in and i gota say that if i knew this made tuning a carb this much eaiser id have done this 5yrs ago when i bought the car.

    Ill do a quick video in a day or so, but my best tune shows i was running slightly rich. TThis allowed me To tune in about 15 minutes to the perfect air fuel ratio. I love this thing.

    It also showed me that the vacuum gauge is very very close, but i always backed off a little much on the lean when i shouldnt have. Trust your vacuum gauge!

    Also it allows you to see at cruise and under load whats happening.

    Things i learned.

    1 trust your vacuum gauge

    2 get your transfere slots set square and then leave it alone on a 4 barrel.

    3 adjust idle using secondary adjustment screw.

    4 read and study all you can. Theres alwaalways more to learn.

    When did you paint the hood? I don't remember that.

    Looks great! Definitely an incentive to continue to keep at it on mine. Hoping to find some old school cragers for mine as well. I have booked marked your build for some ideas for mine.
