    Default 1940 carburetor

    What is the correct carb for a 440 and what would be the initial settings on the high and low speed needles? Thanks!

    The carb was a Schebler DLX124, and for initial needle settings I would suggest 1 3/8 turns out on the highspeed, and 4 turns out on the low.

    Since the manifolds are impractical to leaktest properly, your results may vary...

    Thanks for the info. Never did get back to you but am running one of your reconditioned manifolds on my '47 UL and have had no more leak problems. Thanks!
