    Nope. goes slower. If I was to add fuel while the cut outs were open it would go faster. Was a big waste of money. sounds like chit when opened too.

    Whatever it takes to give it more fuel. More carb, more jet until it starts to run fat.

    Why do you have to drop the tank to take the sending unit out?

    Doesn't a 68 have the same sender access hole in the trunk as a 69?

    Nope. Hole started in 69 to access the electric pump. 68 had mechanical pump on the L side of the engine like any other BBB.
