All Choked Up
Barry Grant announces its new choke-equipped Road Demon Jr. carburetors. Effective immediately, all Road Demon Jr. carburetors will be equipped with an electric or manual choke. The manual-choke-equipped carburetors will be defined with a "VM" suffix to the part number; the electric choke models will have a "VE" suffix. The Road Demon Jr. is the perfect replacement carburetor for engines in cars and light trucks. The Road Demon Jr. is offered in three sizes for engines with smooth idle characteristics: 525 cfm (6282020 VM; 6282020 VE), 625 cfm (6282010 VM; 6282010 VE), and 725 cfm (6402020 VM; 6402020 VE).
Road Demon Jr. carburetors utilize a side-hung-float design, allowing the carburetor to be used in applications where clearances may be a problem. The design of the Road Demon Jr. gives it the hallmark "Demon appearance" in a more compact design and uses the Road Demon center sections featuring concentric venturi placement and the patented aero-flow air entries for better driveability and performance.
Other features include vacuum secondary; float bowls with large, EZ-Safe sight glass for safe float-level adjustment; two-corner idle adjustability; a large, trouble-free fuel transfer tube with dual-captured O-ring sealing; built-in Power Valve blow-out protection; and two constant, one ported vacuum outlets. Road Demon Jr. carburetors use Max-Density(tm) cast metering blocks to maintain accurate tuning and a Max-Density(tm) rib-reinforced cast baseplate that provides a stable platform for smooth throttle plate operation. The Road Demon Jr. is available with a Ford kick-down linkage.
Each carb is wet-flow tested and baseline calibrated at the factory and is shipped with a detailed tuning manual.
