    So, I’m getting very close to finished. But how do I run the vent lines from the carbs? Just straight to atmosphere or “Y”d together or? 0AB032BC-4E7C-4272-BAC5-6D372AB72332.jpeg

    Straight to atmosphere between cylinders. No Y, I think one is 10" and the other 11"
    Pretty sure theres a wright up in the HOW

    Aye, they route down between the V with 1 being 11' and the other 10', can't remember which is which though, like crw says though it's in the how.

    Get the ends outside any airbox and hide them down in the vee of the cylinders out of the wind.

    You don't need vent lines without airbox

    Unless the float sticks and pumps a bunch of fuel out on top of a hot engine.

    It will do that with or without the 10" venting line

    I'd still run them, and have them down out of the air stream. Although, there probably isn't much fast air moving through there.

    That's up to personal preference, but the only reason there is a line there is because carb vents need to be exposed to env. pressure. If the box is gone, then these vents should go away too since they are of no use anymore.
