I jumped off into the twighlight zone and welded up a two into one manifold tonight. I put the left side carb(bs38) on it and didn’t change any settings. Fired up first kick. Didn’t run great. Upped pilot one and lifted needle clip one. Calmed down to rideable. Took it about half mile. Definitely some tuning still to do and will post back with final settings.

Might just be the fact I’m using my phone, but in the first pic on your manifold at the 1-2 position it looks like some porosity. Id just hit that down and run another bead over that just to be sure so you’re not chasing your tail with jetting. If it is my eyes and phone not seeing right then disregard what I said haha
