Not yet. And I really don't like how the first fuel bowl came out. So does anybody have a sand blaster or bead blaster and know somebody that can powdercoat? lol Either that, or I'm going to look on Ebay and see what kind of shiny 4150 bowls I can find. Taking it easy tonight. Going to relax and watch a couple movies or something. Check out ebay for some fuel bowls probably.

Just ordered a set of chrome fuel bowls off ebay for almost 50$ shipped.  Complete set with bolts and plugs for the driver's side fuel inlets.  Dual sight glasses as well built into the bowls, not screwed into them.  And they're huge!  Read through the feedback for the guy and found a couple for the same bowls and nothing but positive about them, so figured for 50$, it's not a huge investment and would be worth a try.  Plus I like the huge sight glasses!  They're on both sides too biggrin

Fuel Bowls

While I'm waiting for my new fuel bowls, today I'm going to redo the firewall to the trunk with some thicker metal. After review, I found that I used 26 gauge sheet metal which is the equivalent to about .022 or so. Not thick enough, plus it turned out like **** anyway so I'm going to do it much nicer this time around and also do the whole rear area including the panel areas to finish it up. Pics later if I finish tonight.

Sheet metal is done, carb is back on the car.  Just have to buy some new adapters for the fuel log and probably a new fuel log while I'm at it.  The chrome bowls don't look too bad haha

Got one valve cover back on today before other stuff came up. Seems when people need work done on their cars, it's a whole bunch of people all at once lol Just put new pads/rotors and primary o2 sensor on a friends 96' Mercedes yesterday and then helped another friend get her ignition switch working on her 98' Cutlass tonight. Doing another o2 sensor on a newer Focus this weekend. Oh well, money is money lol TW can wait.

Going to order either tonight, or tomorrow, my new fuel log stuff. Trying to find a part number for a -6an 'T' that has the 1/8" gauge port tapped in it but can't find a single one. I see all the fuel logs that come with it, but no seperate part number. This sucks! The driver's side valve cover and making my own fuel log are the only two things holding me up!

The last piece to the puzzle will be here tomorrow biggrinbiggrinbiggrin  Only problem is I work until 10pm tomorrow and I'm working on a friends car before work, so I won't even have time to get the car running and carb adjusted before I have to go to work at 1 disbelief

Well, bowl fittings got here today. I got off of work at 10 though, so I only had time enough to put them in, hook up the fuel line, and crank it to get pressure. Although I'm not getting any pressure now. The floats are way out of whack lol

Although the problem I'm having already, I adjusted the front bowl down as far as I could. Now I can't even barely get it out with the adjusting nut it's down so far and it's still way high. The rear I think can go down some more and needs too just a bit. Going to knob-dick with it in the morning when I can actually start it if I can get it working. Hopefully a better report in the morning thumbsdown.gif

Looks good, Chad.

Just an idea for you. If you want to be safe for your own reasons, and not to just pass the nhra tech guy, you might want to buy a can or two of the spray foam insulation. I juiced my entire package tray and rear seat area with the stuff. Looks uglier than a bad case of cancer. However, if the day ever comes when things go bad, I am hoping it buys me a couple extra seconds to get TF out of the car.

I did inside the rear fenders to keep the smoke out with the insulation foam. But if you want it to buy you some time, you have to make sure you use the fire-stop insulating foam. The regular blue or red can will actually speed the process up if something should happen to 'heat up' in that area. Highly flammable, only meant to stop drafts and insulate cracks and gaps. The fire-stop stuff is about 8$ a can down here. Pricey stuff for what it is, but you never know, could be a life saver one day.

$8 isn't too pricey at this stage of the game.

I may be reckless, but I draw the line at ridiculous.

Okay, so I'm seeing a side of TW that she hasn't shown me in a while...The temporamental side. I don't think she appreciates the cheap fuel bowls, because I can't get her to run no matter what I do. She idles like **** and won't rev, nothing comes out of the squirters no matter how far I push the arm down.

Off to Summit I go to find some nice fuel bowls with big sight glasses and 9/16-24 inlets.

I'm an idiot...Anybody got some accelerator pump check valves they aren't using? lol The umbrella kind is what I need. Makes you wonder how a carb wouldn't keep a car running while there's fuel constantly dumping into it through the accelerator pump that has nothing between the pump and the carb. Doh!

I think once I pull my head out of my ass these fuel bowls are actually going to work out pretty well. Just need a couple umbrellas to put into the accelerator pumps.
