      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hello All, Has no one got any opinions or advice on this one? I have since ordered the new correct carb - DGV (Manual Choke) Anyone have any advise on best settings/jetting with a Formula Ford Kent engine? Many thanks JP
  2. Dear All, I hope you are all well. I am running a Formula Ford with a Kent 1.6 engine. (Standard cam/crank/lightened flywheel/dissy replaced with electronic ignition) We have the standard 32/36 DGAV Webber and are suffering from a loss of around 16bhp in power. I put this down to a number of factors: 1. Very poor cast Intake Manifold. 2. Reverse orientation of carb due to chassis shape 3. Oversize/ill fitting carb to manifold gasket 4. Jetting and carb set-up Points 1-3 are being rectified but I was wondering if there is any tuning I can carry out in order to improve our power. All valves and seats including timing have been set accordingly. We are allowed to change the following according to the rules: 1. Jetting 2. Opening of venturi/throttle together 3. Remove cold start and diffuser bar 4. Fit anti-surge pipes We are not allowed to blue print/polishing or reprofile the carb. Any help would be appreciated I want to get the best out of our carb and engine. JP
