My 1/2 race car

When the first 1/2 takes off, it just picks up and flys, when it comes down,, the cross beam is pretty close about 10 seconds away....
Next year maybe a turbo with 12 psi boost = 300 HP!!!
I don't understand the list of extensions and file size, I made this into a BMP at 640x480 and the list said too big??? took in to 400X300 still to big??? mad it into a JPG 240X180 and finally took it! Am I doing something wrong???

Photoshop 7.0

Just use .JPG for posting on the web. BMP files are not compressed much and as a result have a big file size. A JPG image could have an image size of 640x480 and file size of 50 KB while a BMP could have the same image size and have a file size of 1 MB.

I undersand that, but there is a chart on the site the lays it out and it said to upload a 640X480 file in BMP format and it would be X K,, I use Photoshop, or Uleads Photo Impact and reduce that picture to the 640x480 and it is way to big,,I am used to resizing for the web and making web pages snap on a screen for a dial up connect, and blowing pictures way UP with Genuine Fractals in STN format, and a Photoshop nut for too many years,, but this has me stumped. Now a big deal, just curious. My pictures are up.

Thanks

Just get into the habbit of never using bmp files for uploading images to the internet. File sizes are huge compaired to jpg files and as you found out on here, you run into problems pretty quick. btw, cool little ride you got there. I ran against a turbo bug earlier in the year, stayed just about side by side till I'm guessing his intake pipe blew off or he had other problems.

Interesting,,,,???

Notice the date of my post on the Mikuni carbs, and your reply about BMP pictures,,, the positioning,, I wonder how I got my post before yours?? No matter, thanks for the BMP info,, I don't use that format much, STN and JPG for the pic's and GIF for the moving ones,, fun to create!!

I sure don't want to lose an intake pipe for sure, but the Mikunis will be pull through turbo,,

Old age

In my case it is getting to be OLD AGE!!! You have to speak for yourself... but no matter the reason,, remember these words,,,,, BETTER LATE,,, THAN NEVER.....

On the photo post's,, It really had me confused as to what they wanted,,, (not that it mattered) as I can shrink a picture to nothing, or blow it up without loosing the resolution,, I use Photoshop,,, now do it just for fun.. Anyway, I am in the need for rebuild kits.. look in the tool box and see if ya got any for the carbs!!

Be safe

Ran a search on the number and it came up with a Holley cross reference chart (64-9617). Typed that number into Summit Racing and it's coming up with a reman carb. Under the applications it's showing 3 vehicles.

1978 PLYMOUTH SAPPORO
1978 Dodge Colt
1978 Dodge Challenger

All with the 2.6L 4 cylinder. Does that sound right to you? I guess it would be possible to go to a parts store to see if they have a rebuild kit for any of those vehicles or ask Holley for a kit.

Have you tried thru www.mikuni.com? The site seems to be for motorcycles and such, but could be helpful...I think those were a set up sold by B&M YEARS ago...

Just hoping now,,,,

I have tried that website, went to B&M trying to find the intake, no luck, the carbs work now, but may need rebuilding, jets or just gaskets,,, I am running out of places to look,,,
