    SU's won't balance

    A little history: I bought my Z with a 4bbl Holley on it and decided I would do better with SU's, so I bought a pair on e-bay. They were gummed up pretty badly, but I put a lot of effort into them...

    Hella thanks!

    That was exactly the problem Victor Laury. I replaced the fuse, and my whole world lit up. Now, I think I'll drive to Austin on Wednesday.

    This is my exact setup (73 and everything).

    Wow. I couldn't get the MSD and tach to get along. Some suggested that I get a tach from a 280Z. I can't wait to try this out tonight.
