The replacement metering block has been holding up much better though. And, yes, that's Ellie's white fluffy butt in the background.

I think I see the problem Patrickt. The two main jets are clocked incorrectly!

The jet on the left has its screwdriver slot clocked at approximately 2 o'clock and the one on the right is clocked at approximately 10 o'clock. This potentially sets up a trans dimensional vortex while the engine is running that sucks the cheap plating, that Holley uses, off the metering body replacing it with some form of white inter-dimensional waste material.

Who knows for certain but possibly under full throttle an Einstein-Rosen Bridge could appear in close proximity to the mis-clocked main jet originated vortex potentially penetrating the protective bubble of another universe in close proximity to our own. If that would happen it's possible a small black hole could form swallowing the entire Holley carburetor — perhaps even the air cleaner!

Your friend in time and space,


Help them do what they would have done if they had known what they could do.
