I ran a stock GAL on my 55" 66 for quite a while. It was just beautiful compared to the Tillotson and as Capt said the mileage improved dramatically. As I reported sometime back, we ran the motor at Fremont Drag strip and Tillotson to GAL, the bike picked up 10 MPH. My friend Jim spent a morning trying to beat another friend's Kitted Honda 4 and kept getting beat by a length. The engine is a 72" stroker '64. Jim went home took off the DL and put on his GBL came back and beat the Honda by 2 every time they raced.
