Jets - March 25th 2018 1:00 am

I'm going to rebuild my holley 1945 carburetor and figured I'd play around with a few jet sizes. I'm looking for 60 or 61 size jets for it. From what I find online those sizes work pretty good in this carb. Can anyone point me in a direction on where to buy them? And what thread count they are? Or any other information on what jets work well. Thank you much.

Standard Holley jets should work. Slants were notoriously jetted lean. 61-63 would be a good step up. For more info about jetting slant six carbs than you will ever be able to digest, head over www.slantsix.org

Ok so I did a rebuild on the Holley 1945. This was a remanufactured I got a few weeks ago, figured I rebuild it myself. Glad I did too. I also put a size 62 jet in. The jet in there was slightly bigger maybe a 64-65? The only number on it was 298. And it looked old, so they didn't put a new jet in. I have no idea what a 298 is. Any ideas?
