Haha....long time

So this beast is still running..




Yes it is very well I must add.  Thank you.


Always super PROPS to Jim and Nicole Woods for their SBF business @ Fordstrokers.com!

Super cool to do business with and they get the job done.  This 408W that they built and shipped to me back in 2011 is machined and put together with superior parts.  I realize that every time I fire up the Merc.

Nice.

So no rebuilds or freshen ups between then? How many miles you figure?

Nothing.  The 408W drives today the same as it did when I first got it.  Actually better since I upgraded from a Holley 750 to a QuickFuel 850 cfm carb about three months after I got the engine.

Probably around 30,000 miles.

The too small 750 cfm Holley carb was from my previous Windsor actually.  Nicole Woods suggested an 850 cfm carb for their 408W.  It helped the top-end power for SURE!

FYI -- On Quick Fuel Technology carbs:  The fuel bowl floats HAVE to be set at halfway up the sight glass levels with the engine IDLING otherwise the carb's transfer slot circuits will not get enough fuel to offer the best in performance.

If your cam makes the engine shake too much at idle to see where in the heck the fuel level in the bowl is then give it just enough gas to steady the rockin' engine.

Talking about off idle acceleration.

Sorry but I typed incorrectly.  The correct way is to check the float levels with the engine NOT running.   Wink
