Re: Question for the guys running pony carbs

I am running the stock airbox, it just fit fine, but now that I think about it, I did trim the hose back a little to prevent some of the binding. I am running a fuel regulator, recommended by wildweasel, and it also works fine. No flooding out at 0.5 psi off-road, and no problems with power at 5 psi on the road. I have no problems going up or down hills, but it does idle up to about 2,500 when going down steel hills. Plenty of throttle and power for going up, and yesterday I went up some stuff that was vertical.

All in all I LOVE the Pony, it's such an improvement over the stock POS.

Re: Question for the guys running pony carbs

I had to "modify" my airbox to get the thing to fit. if you look on http://www.izook.com/tech/ponycarb/ponycarbpg2.htm you will see what I did. Other than that I have had no flooding probs, but I haven't had her in a 40* position yet either

Re: Question for the guys running pony carbs

no complaints with my pony, didn't even rebuild it and it runs like a top. my 88.5 airbox fit fine but anything lower has to be modified(i think) I just installed a holley regulator with pressure gauge but still haven't tested it yet.don't see why it shouldn't work

Re: Question for the guys running pony carbs

Thanks for the info guys,I had figured it would be a close fit.I will go pick up my regulator tomorrow and get ready to put it on at the end of the week.I want to get the regulator right because some alot of the wheeling i will bw doing will be EXTREMELY vertical.I dont want it to be flooding on me!!!hmmmmm..Jeepn..2000+rpm...Ide look into that!!something does not seem right, now you got me thinkin'if your float is not a little sticky/re-adjustment?Other then the flooding issue,I never heard anyone say anything about rpm change?

Re: Question for the guys running pony carbs

Naah, I already know what it is. It's the bushing around the throttle plate linkage that's leaking air into the system. I need to have a new bushing made for the carb, but probably won't get to it until this summer sometime. It does come out of it when I go beyond 30 degrees downhill, probably just leaks fuel out of it, so it's not really a problem.

It doesn't flood out by any means, still runs great. I have stopped on steep hills before and it always stays running fine, just idles up high.

Re: Question for the guys running pony carbs

Err I think Mark means it idle up when pointed downhill right Mark? By mounting the float to the rear it will have some extra fuel from the floatbowl when going downhill, as long as the regulator is turned down it's not too bad.
Mark check for vac leaks around the base of the carb, mine developed some after 6 months. You should be able to get as low as 600 rpm- 850 easy.

Re: Question for the guys running pony carbs

I just got my pony from Tazuki...havn't put it on yet.Sure seems a lot simpler, specially when I removed that pesky throttle letoff gizmo.
Anyone know where I can get a choke cable? Do the autoparts stores carry them?
