If it wasn’t for bad luck…

If it wasn’t for bad luck…I wouldn’t have any Luck at all!  Well I finally got everything I needed from Summit to install my Dual Quads on the ’71 Camaro Z28.  This has been going on for a year now and I’m still having problems getting it done.

Well first off I discovered when I tried to install my new Edlebrock Dual Quad breather that the Carbs were to far apart and it would not fit.  This discovery lead me to test fitting the Fuel Manifold.   SHIT! SHIT! SHIT! It will not work either.  This damn Weiand Manifold is my headache now.  Looks like I will have to go to individual bonnets on the carbs (finding 2 that will fit in the cowl induction opening of my hood will be another task all together) and extend the braided line on the Fuel Manifold.  I never knew that there was a difference in the two manifolds as far as the Carb placement.  I’m usually an Edlebrock man all the way but Dad bought this for me for a steal and all I thought I would have to do is rebuild the carbs.  Man was I wrong!  Seems here lately nothing is coming easy for me.

Check out the original post from when I received the Dual Quads here!

Stay tuned for the next not-so-exciting chapter of  Curse Of The Dual Quads!
