Hello, We have a new/old Chump Car that we've got almost ready. In testing last week at Homestead Motor Speedway, we found the engine would stall because of fuel pressure or lack thereof, in left hand turns. My track fix was to pour more fuel in it. It would run normally with 16 gallons in it, but after 5-10 laps the problem would reoccur. The track runs counter clockwise so this is quite a problem. Essentially, we are able to use about 3 gallons of fuel if we're filled up. We have an SU Carb set up with a 1978 fuel tank, running the return system for the fuel to return to the tank. We were able to get fuel pressure and run the new engine in the garage with only 3 gallons in the tank, so I feel we at least have the pick up plumbed properly. I have run many street cars on the race track and never had this problem. Any ideas for me to check? Thanks, greg ira
After searching for awhile, I noticed there wasn't a concise thread covering choices on gauge sets. (*Mods, Delete this if its redundant please.) This thread is to share links or pictures of your installed gauges and to note what it required to dial them all in. Please note any changes you would have made if you where to do it all over again. I was personally looking for a smoked or blacked out type when ignition is off and then they light up when activated. Sort of like the Subaru units or the Dakota brand does. Any thoughts?
