ok so having the header is nice but now that its cold the carb freezes really really easy, ive got a moulded piece of aluminum around two of the pipes and a hole in it and its connected to the air intake hole thing but could that valve not be opening? what is it that opens it up, is it a vacuum? or could i just prop the valve open a little bit instead? without having the block heater on the carb is super super shitty and its only -9 max at night

you button hooked me, i didnt know you were going to button hook me

one fix that I don't know will fit is the old progressive 2bbl Webber. It came on my '70 Pinto 2.0L thats in my 42 GPW. the heater hose conects to it, so, heated carb. Also nice as its a 1bbl untill you step on it, then the 2nd bbl opens.

'42 GPW, 3" lift, Pinto power
'85 F-350 Crew Cab 2" lift, 35's '
88 4Runner5" lift , 31's
