Post Carbs

Just wondering if anyone has ever tried to run two Webber 2bbl progressives?
I am using a 2bbl progressive and have a spare. I wonder if it would work. With the carb I have, it seems somewhat breathless at medium RPM.

Sanity check: My motor turns 3000 rpm at 70 mph. Sound right? ~3300 at 80.

I just checked my '76 with 185-15 tires using a handheld GPS unit and your speeds sound about right.

Thanks for the speed check. I thought it seemed reasonable.

I still have the question out as to whether anyone has tried to run dual 2bbl progressives.

You could biuld a manjfold for each side or use two of the "normal progesive manifolds on shortend runners, but it will not run very well unless you spend alot of time tunjng and even then I think you will have driveabilty problems. Steve
