Running a 2L 16V with dual weber 45's and have the carter pump. Which fuel filter should I run? I've heard of a 3 port filter than I can run the nipple on the tank that was for the return line to instead of capping off that nipple.

I use a ~'89 Maxima fuel filter. It has 5/16 (8mm) nipples on both sides.

cheap and dirty - use dimes and some high temp silicone in each injector port.
or, go buy 4 trans drain plugs from the dealer and screw them in.
I got a couple questions about my carb set up
-the carter 4070 pump i got didnt come with any wire harness, where can i get some wires that will hook up to the terminals on the pump?
-I plan on running new fuel lines what size should i go?
-I wanna run a fpr, how much pressure is good for dellorto 40s?
Thanks very the help
Concerning Flat Slide Motorcycle carbs
......to be continued
Quote, originally posted by Jeprli » Flat slide main jets only come into action at top quarter of throttle, midrange is controlled by the size and position of needle(you move a clip on the needle to a different position, upwards leaner, downwards richer, it basically controls when the main jet will kick in) and for first half of throttle it's all in the a/f mixture screw. If engine is running too rich with these carbs, it will bog down at lets say 4000rpm, if it's too lean it will let you know a lot sooner as it will have hard time starting. These type of carbs use very low fuel pressure as most are gravity fed so don't go crazy with pressure 2-3 psi the most. Oh and there is the float bowl which has a fork that controls these floats, you can bend that tab and allow more fuel into the bowl, but that is only for those who really know what they're doing. Also adding a little bit of high quality 2 stroke oil as a premix to your tank will keep flatslides smooth , and keep them from seizing(16:1-10:1 premix ratio). Balance and lighten your engines when using these as they rev up a lot quicker than fuel injected motor. These are practically impossible to synchronize, so the best you can do is have each one set exactly the same. I'll be doing this for my winter project, using a 2l aba motor with most probably yamaha R1 slides.
All additional info IM the original quoter, Udig?

okay, lets take this to the top with some real crazy idea's
I have recently acquired a mk2 8v along with a dual 40mm mukini carb setup and cam.... I really want to run nitrous with that setup and don't even know where to start.
I'm gonna need ur help on the carb side of this from A to Z, its gonna be rather ground breaking and a spare 8v motor has been donated for the cause to see what this will produce. I have some help from experienced tech's awaiting the neccessary info to install the carb setup. Just lay it out here for them and we'll be testing the nitrous grounds shortly there after.
Yes I said nitrous, everyone can keep their negative comments to themselves.

I have a 92 16v gti. And a pair of 45dcoe's, now since i have no ignition control unit. Can i just use a MSD6AL with my factory computer and Dizzy? Or will this not work? And what size fuel line are you using from the pump to the front?
Modified by DriVeWaY2L16V at 1:49 AM 1-11-2008
you can use one of the existing lines for fuel, swap out fuel pumps, run a regulator and filter and your good to go. no return needed with 4psi
use the factory dizzy and a MSD 6A or 6AL. you can add the 8990 timing computer for more advance also. the diagrams are above. The ignition control units are a dime a dozen in junk yards.
