    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.

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

    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. [​IMG]

    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.

    Good to know terry.

    For me the Ferrette is the choice. The easiest to fit in tight places and the OS needle is great.

    Have and update. I got the Champion base with the two banjo fittings and the .12-.21 needle doesn't work. With the needle bottomed out and the needle base bottomed out you still get fuel flow and way to much at that. Got home and put the .45-101 needle in it and I can now get no fuel flow so time to finish the 40 hydro and will test the needle again when I go to break in the 40.

    If you use the long tapered OS needle (12 -21 as you call it) it won't seat in the straight fitting, you havta use one of the smaller diameter banjo fittings.
