    Setting by ear is my favorite means. Bmorgil is correct, it is fun adjusting carbs while everyone around you is doing the same with open headers. I had an old beat up Holley 500 that I used on all...

    Try going to advanced over on the right corner. Click on the paperclip. On a phone or tablet, the site wants to pull from documents, then to pictures. Hope that helps. Can't wait to see your Jeep!
