A/A Fine Needle, $31.00, comes as a simple kit for you to put together.  

 

Or, you can get one that John Otto or Roger Hooks Sr. has put together,  ready to run.

Ron has 4 to choose from. Nova, KRE, BVM, and another which I think is champion. Plus you have the Don Ferette base but not on Rons site.

I have Don's base in all my boats.  Very compact. Never had an issue.

I'm gonna give one of these a try in my new SAW boat, I like the flexibility of the banjo fittings.

Terry,

Those work well. We have quite a few in our boats.

I only run the Ferrette's. Small, light weight and simple. I like the adjustability of the banjos but looks like more places to potentially leak. JMO!

Boaters,

 

On a big bore motor the fuel doctor type design is another great option.

Flow is never a problem with these type when you start to pull these new 

ABC 2727's.

 

Thanks For Reading,

The bases I sell have been used on everything from the little .12s to mega big block record trials motors. :)

Update:  It wouldn't flow enough for my SAW boat (11ish on my old school propane unit) so I drilled two more holes per banjo fitting.  Would be enough for a big block if you used the straight fitting in one position.
