I have an Innovate AFR and use it both bung-mounted as well as with a tail pipe adapter. The tail pipe adapter can be less accurate at idle due to reversionary air flow contamination.
But under driving conditions I’ve found both mounting schemes provided consistent info. Makes tuning carbs much easier.

Cheap soft mounts are very expensive.
Buy the best quality you can find.
Trust me on the Franck VF tube concept. Changes the entire thinking around Webers. Frankly, his explanations suck. But the tubes work.

Thanks, back to the basics. If all the systems are not correct fooling with the carbs is a waste of time.
Hoping to get this issue cleared up and then on to setting the Webers up. We have an Innovate LM 2 with the tail pipe adapter. Has anyone had luck with this setup? I have never used it, but does look somewhat confusing. We will not be using the OBD function or the RPM function.

|930cabman||Last night I was able to spray some starting fluid around the carb soft mounts and the engine speed increased and smoothed out. Seems as new soft mounts are the next step. Centerline has them for $25./each, it sounds like a no brainer. I also connected a vacuum gauge and the needle was bouncing all over the place, telling me a vacuum leak. If vacuum leaks exist, I don't think any amount of carb tuning will provide the desired result.|

I recommend you try a set of Keith Franck’s “VF” tubes before you get lost swapping emulsion tubes.
Also, make sure you’ve got at least a 33 Venturi. With hot cams, I’d try 34 or 35 at least, but WITH the VF tubes.

My buddy used an older model than that for years and loved it.
The bung would be faster reacting, but at this point not crucial.
Any measuring device is a great tool in determining your jetting needs.
It's the most accurate and efficient route to take.
I could give you my jetting specs but they're not necessarily gonna work for you. It's all a guess, and i suspect you don't need any more guesswork.
I live at 5300 foot elevation. What's your elevation? These are factors that can make or break you without proper diagnosis.

32mm (DCOE 44/45 is normally 30mm). And you’re right: I may be too rich as I went back to std set up (117 main jet, 180 air jets and F16 tube), and transition
was much better. I also checked the cams timing, and it seems my exhaust valves are opened 0.15mm too high at BDC. So I probably have a bit more valve overlap than it should. I’ll correct that tomorrow and see the effect. But in any case I think I now need a rolling road and check my air/fuel ratio to make sure my engine runs properly

0.5 mm should not make much difference.
A friend - 65Sprint, asked me to drive his car and tell him what I thought about it. It had a flat spot around 4000 rpm. He thought that it was lean and he was using larger than normal main jets. I lent him my wideband AFR and he found that it was too rich. He was then able to eliminate the flat spot by installing smaller jets. Even experienced drivers can find it hard to distinguish between an overly rich and an overly lean condition.
What size venturis (chokes) are in your carbs?
