thanks for thinking about me but i have a guy here that is going to give me one 
of his. that is if i don't tap and reuse mine...carb is still in great shape 
just has a hole on the side where a fuel line is supposed to be.

i'm still eyeballing another friends progressive so i might see this as being 
the opportunity to put the altenator on that i have and a progressive carb to 
go with the merged exhaust...that should free up a bit more power too.

lots of opportunities this fire has caused. (that sounded a bit like yoga or 
whatever that gremlin was named)
