On April 24, the Street Demon production line issued its first 750 Street Demon carburetors. In a week’s time the assembly cells will be expanded, allowing production volumes to double. In the meantime details of a calibration kit for the new carburetor have emerged.
• Allows fuel flow rates to be adjusted below or above production calibrations
• Provides jets, metering rods for fine tuning, and springs for perfect idle
• Resolves tuning troubles caused by altitude, cams, high compression, etc.
• Banishes eye-watering exhaust fumes for sunnier disposition
Dawsonville, GA: Demon Carburetion’s calibration kit for the new 750 Street Demon facilitates changes to the carburetor’s fuel flow rates.
Via an assortment of metering rods, primary and secondary jets, and piston springs, fuel flow rates can be adjusted above and below the production calibrations. Thus the carburetor performs richer or leaner—you can calibrate it to the exact air-fuel ratios for any specific engine or condition.
Commonly fuel flow alterations are initiated by changes in altitude, camshaft, higher compression ratios, or engine displacement—and sometimes by unequal distribution from an intake manifold at different engine speeds.
Generally, metering rods are changed to adjust air-fuel ratios in finer increments while jets are changed to affect larger increments. In summary, the tuning kit is useful for correcting hesitation troubles or eye-watering exhaust fumes or puffs of smoke under acceleration. At the chassis dynamometer it quickly enables the tuner to accomplish maximum efficiency.
All components in the Demon calibration kit are supplied in pairs and all jets and needles are stamped for easy identification. Now available under part number 1931, the new 750 Street Demon calibration kit is priced at $57.69.
