synchronizing carbs

Postby dan1951 » Wed Oct 13, 2010 10:51 pm



Hi everyone, Any body out there ever use a synchronizer that looks like it,s home made it consist of a peg board with four clear plastic hoses on it, I borrowed it from a friend that does not how to use it either it,s filled with auto trans fluid. I hooked it up the same as the old days with the mercury type that I heard the E.P.A. outlawed. The trouble is trans fluid does not have the same characteristics as mercury. The strongest hg. carb sucks the trans fluid into the port. If anybody can point me in the right steps to use this new fangled gizzie I would greatly apprecieate it. Thank You in advance.

Loop the hoses like the pic. Also use colored water and not trany fluid. Water is heavier and harder to move.
