Hemi Carter AFB Carb connection to Distributor Advance
« on: August 16, 2017 - 12:55:47 am »
Pulled my rear Carb off the 426 hemi to rebuild possibly. It only has a 1000 miles on it but the first 650 were over a 5 year period. It runs a bit rough off idle.  On removing the Carb, I notice that the hose to the distributor advance was laying unconnected between the front and rear carbs.  The rear Carb has a nipple cover on the front port.  Shouldn't the distributor advance hose be connected?

TIA,

Steve K.

Talking to Scott Smith the carb expert.  The nipple in the front of that carb is the attachment point for the distributor vac advance hose.

well, yes, the hose should be connected, if you want vacuum advance to work?

LOL.  Yes, thought that there was possibly some odd lockout preference that some hemi owners did on the dizzy.
