    I'm thinking that a smaller servo would be better as vacuum is lower

    brake servo

    Got a bit of a weird problem that maybe someone on here can help me with? my Buick has got a high lift cam in it and my brakes are--lets say not very good--I got 4 pots and vented discs for ages now --they were really good with the 3.9 yet since fitted the Buick they're poor The problem-I think...

    Mine used more fuel going to Gaydon than coming back--could it be that Gaydon is uphill-so to speak? only a thought?

    SUs Or Holley

    Am I missing the point here? you either want performance OR economy you cant have both with a v8 Performance wise get the holley carb as its easier to set up and as it closely copies the rochester that was on the 216 Buick to begin with --Rover wanted supply but had contract problems with SU...

    black plugs is as you stated--running rich----have you got a leak on inlet manifold (open up when hot) this could cause your problem mate

    Main fuel line replacement

    What pump you got--I had a facet red top--it was moderately ok until I reached higher speed use when it could keep up--and that was on a 3.9
