In an age of fuel injection, the release of a new carburetor is rare, but Demon Carburetion has released the 625 Street Demon, engineered for hot rods with stock to mildly modified engines. Cast from aluminum, it fits square- or spread-bore-pattern intake manifolds without adapters. The Street Demon features two 1 3/8-inch primary throttle bores, which contain triple-stack boost venturii. Two of the boosters are suspended across the bores in the conventional way; the third integrated into the throttle bore wall to produce superior fuel emulsification.
A single fuel inlet ensures simple installation and two-stage metering rods accommodate most tuning requirements, without carburetor disassembly or removal. For cold starting, an electric-assist bimetal coil choke is provided. Street Demons are available in three forms: all aluminum tumble-burnished, tumble-burnished with polymer fuel bowl, and all-aluminum hand polished.

Two For The Price Of One
Looking for a simple, effective, and attractive way to mount both the headlights and shocks on your highboy? Speedway Motors has the solution with their Universal Shock and Headlight Mounts, providing a strong, simple, eye-catching way to mount both items with one part. Available in weld-on or bolt-on configurations, these precision-built steel mounts are designed to fit on the outside and top surfaces of the framerail and allow you to mount most headlights requiring 1/2-inch mounting holes. Two pairs of upper shock mount holes let you choose the ideal shock angle for your application.
The mounts measure 6 inches from the top of the framerail to the upper shock mount hole. They are available plain, or can be ordered in kit form, which includes 1 3/4-inch shackles (plain or optional stainless steel) with an extended stud for lower shock mounting. For more information, contact Speedway Motors at (800) 979-0122 or www.speedwaymotors.com.
Crimping By Mail
When it comes to installing A/C or heater hoses, one of the biggest expenses is purchasing the crimping tool for the hose fittings. Check out the A/C install story on page 74 of this issue as an example. Well, Gotta Show Products, the only manufacturer of stainless steel A/C and heater fittings, just made things easier by announcing they’ll undertake free crimping and 500-pound pressure testing on all fittings they manufacture, for rubber or braided hose. Turnaround time is usually one business day for hoses that are properly cut, assembled, and marked.
Instructions for assembly come with every kit or may be downloaded from the company’s website. They will return ship at cost through UPS. For more information, contact Gotta Show at (602) 237-4506 or www.gottashow.com.
Braking Round Corners
Want hanging pedals rather than worrying about clearance issues with underfloor master cylinders, but don’t want the booster or cylinders on the outside of the firewall? Kugel Komponents offers a reverse-mount, 90-degree, hanging-style pedal assembly, and has been building these assemblies since 1996. The assembly is also compact, maximizing underdash space, and is compatible with power or manual brake systems. A smaller 180-degree non-power assembly is also offered and both units are available for brake and clutch or brake-only applications.
All master cylinders are available as standard or remote fill. The assembly shown features a 7-inch power booster (8 inch is also available), Corvette master cylinder, remote conversion lid, and optional slotted pedal arm. Dimensions and other available options—styles of pedal pads, remote fill reservoirs, and other brake accessories—can be seen at the company website. Kugel Komponents also manufactures independent front and rear suspension systems. For more information, contact Kugel Komponents at (562) 691-7006 or www.kugelkomponents.com.
If you’re looking for economical, out-of-the-box horsepower from a pair of cylinder heads, check out the new Dragon Slayer aluminum heads from Brodix. The new Dragon Slayer 225 (that number referring to the as-cast 225cc intake port) comes standard with CNC-ported 68cc combustion chambers allowing this port to flow over 300 cfm at 0.600 cam lift.
