Holley Vent Extension??
Well I got me a Holley 390 CFM 4 bbl for my jeep. It had the bowl already vented when i got it, but i don't like the way it is installed. It is a piece of fule hose with each end over the vents, a hole cut out the top of the arch, and a Piece of wire inside the hose as a stiffener. It was "glued" on to the vents with a hard type of RTV or silicone. Is there a better way of venting the bowls, or is this the way to do it? I have been doing searchs trying to find a site with a write-up, but i couldn't find one. The setup fell off as soon as i got the carb out of the box. What i did not like was that it was "Glued" onto the vents and that glue could break off and enter the engine. The vent from the carb is not that long, but i thought about putting a metal hose clamp to hold it. Is there a way i can thread it and put a fitting on?? Or is the metal too thin? Thanks
