Hi John,

I tried to load the video from home here but it was 11K and the system only allows 10. At any rate, I picked up the carb today and installed it after I got home. Car runs great - no leaks!! I asked the carb guy about the test setup and inquired if it was air that was being run through the carb and simulating engine function, and he said 'heck no, that's a real engine and I'm running gas through your carb same as if it was on your car.' He said he tested it up to 6.2 LBS and it didn't leak and said if my pressure was any higher than that, I'd need a pressure regulator. I had to adjust the air bleed screw quite a bit to smooth out my engine as he had obviously set it for the one on the dyno, but it certainly seems to be working properly and the best part - no drips!!! Now for some Packard Trips!!! Chris.

Good luck, keep us posted! Do you have a fuel pump pressure gauge? First thing I'd look at if the bowl leaks again

That's the strange part John. He said he wasn't sure what the issue was the first time, but he disassembled the whole unit, inspected it and put it back together. Now it doesn't leak a drop and before, gas poured out of it??? I sure would have like to have found out WHAT the actual issue was, but I'll take it this way!! I will sure be keeping an eye on it and will let you know how it works. Chris
