Does it have a jet-able air bleed?

Does the emulsion tube appear similar to an S&S?

Hole is there, drilled an tapped. Comes with a plug in it.

I didn't look at the emulsion tube but they won't work without one so guessing it's in there.

These carbs look to be identical to the real S&S's - just a slightly better finish.

If these guys ever make a replacement for the Quadrajet on my Corvette ..... Whooooppppeeeeee !

Perfect tool for diagnosing electrical problems. Just swap the new carb in and see if the problems disappear BEFORE you buy that new coil.

About the Chinese junk.

The real problem is that this is all too late to change. Have a look around you at what is being sold every day today. Do you watch a TV ? Use a computer ? Ride a motorcycle ? Drive a car ? Wear clothes ?

Just where do you think the bulk of manufactured things are coming from ? Because it's not the USA.

I always thought that America ran a "Capitalistic" economy. The root driver of that is free and unfettered competition. For it to work properly that has to be totally free and unfettered. You can't exclude a town, a county, a state or even a country because they have some "advantage" over you.

The USA does not play fair with other countries. Australia faces Beef and Steel quota's that bars entries of our products into your country. What that means for you as a consumer if that you have to pay more for lower quality beef. Your Government is interfering in the economy to help some producers, like Conagra, at the consumers expense, you.

Once the USA drops all tariffs and quota's and stops subsidizing some producers (also known as interfering in an economy) the USA will power ahead and become great again.

The Chinese started adopting Capitalism about 20 years ago. It's NOT a capitalist economy but has adopted some of it's features.

How's that working for them ?
