Just taking a poll. Are you running Ported or Manifold vac to vacuum advance on early C3 quad carb? Is it factory that way?

I don't have an early C3, but if I did, I'd do what I did for my lates: HEI distributor, manifold vacuum, vac advance limited, etc per Lars' guide. Are you looking for originality, or a car you enjoy driving? Not that those can't be the same thing...

Ok, Awesome, I think I'm going to change mine back to manifold. I switch to ported because I was only getting 10" of vac out of the manifold with the carter 4851s carb.
