Default Re: 35-40 MPH, Really?

...the tank? The fuel tank is prolly just fine like that, it's the float in the carb causing the starvation issue due to the carbs angle...

Through trial and error I've found that while you can mount the carb at a moderate angle - one as extreme as yer just isn't gonna work. Looks as if you've got one of Jim's awesome intakes and it'd be a shame to get rid of that - it there any chance of leveling the engine a bit?

It doesn't need to be perfectly level, but this is about as much carb tilt as ya can get away with - with the tabs bent so far up the lil plug almost doesn't seal;
