Break in question - Fuel in carb bowl vs priming line
I will pre-fill the bowl on the Autolite 2100 carb I am using before cam break in. Is that amount of fuel enough to allow the stock style mechanical fuel pump to get fuel through the empty lines to the carb (I am actually running from a gas can so only about 5-6 feet of hose to the fuel pump? I can figure out a way to prime the fuel hoses/pipes but not sure it is necessary.
At 2000-2500 RPM - I did some rough calcs and am guessing about 9.2 ounces per minute of fuel needed (14 MPG @ 60 MPH = 4.3 GPH = 9.2 oz/min). Again just an estimate. I am guessing the bowl hold 4-6 oz, but just eyeballing it.
