Hey guy I have a street demon carb and one of the front fuel bowl screws is stripped and leaking fuel. Any thoughts one re threading the aluminum? Everything is adjusted thinking maybe an permanent solution like a glue or something. Any ideas????

I don't know but what a heli coil to thread in it or try a machine shop. Is this a replacable part from Demon you know they are trying to win back their market share and customer base......

Yeah I heard I will give them a call. Thinking about an quick flow 685. The demon is a 615.

Be careful bigger is not always better when it comes to carbs.

True, I think 680 cfm should be about right for 350 hp approx. Are you recommending staying with the 610. I think I could use a little more.
