6 carbs but only one that's totally jacked up. Every rubber part is junk in all the carbs though, kind of sucks. Just glad it didn't hydro lock the motor.

ordered the carb parts needed off ebay. I never like buying new shit from there but it saved 60% $$$$ for the same parts

Now thats great to hear, One BIG carb instead of 6 little ones. I may have to learn more about this, of course I,m a Carter AFB kind of guy but I,m big on adapter plates. I guess I,m really OLD.

Been figuring out a no spark issue, turned out the dyna icm was bad. The old owner happened to have the stock one still around. Swap it out and it fired right up, sounds mean with the 6 drag pipes lol
