I put the distribution block on the back of the hat up on top of the intake and it seems to loose it's prime when I lean it down to shut it off. On the other set up I had the distribution block down low on the intake ,it seemed better there??? I'll mess with it some more and see what happens..But it's alive..and LOUD!!
Dan my block is low on the intake and restarts fine.i dont lean it any before i kill it,i just kill the power and about the time the engine stops i pull the shut off.it starts back easy. Very Happy
I'll probably try that Lee and see how it works . I've got some long lines on the front injectors and don't like the idea of them leaking down into a cylinder.I'll figure it out pretty quick on what it likes I hope?? This bigger engine seems so much smoother.It may be the different sound of the zoomies ,but it doesn't seem nearly as radical sounding as the old one scratch

as long as the shut off is pulled and working it's like holding your finger on a straw,it wont drain into the intake. Very Happy

Never thought of it like that, but your right.As soon as I started it today the barrel valve was leaking like crazy. I put new o-rings in it in about 10 minutes and cured the problem . I've never seen o-rings as hard as those old ones were! They felt like rocks Laughing I'm finally starting to get some pep in my step about getting this car race ready..I just ain't been completely into it with all the cancer in my family this last year.Maybe this will get me out of this funk I've been in!!
