Re: CJ carb leaking

Be sure to use the gaskets that are Ethanol friendly. If not you'll continue to have leaks.

Re: 427 v. 428

Later on I replaced the 600 on my 1st GTE with a 950 3Bbl. World of difference. That and some other mods got it into the high twelves on a good day when the engine was cool or low thirteens when things were not so advantageous.

Re: 427 v. 428

Back in the day I had a 427 GTE and a 428CJ GT500KR. I found the 427 would pull hard to 6000rpms while the 428 pulled hard to 5500rpms. Raced them both at Mn drag ways and Twin city speedway. The 427 ran way better times.
