454 dvx 400 carb swap

well guys she lives!!!!!!!!! no visible smoke at idle but im not happy with the oil cloud behind me under any kind of acceleration load on the engine or not:angry:.i still wanna check compression but have to wait to buy a tester.i can definately feel the responsiveness of this dvx carb and there seems to be plenty of power even with all the smoke.i hope that is just valve seals and not cylinder or piston and ring wear.anyway it looks like i more or less ripped all the body of for nothing.#dammit# so now i get to put it all back and there has been miscellanious bolts replaced with the wrong hardware after noticing factory hardware missing,because we use our quads as tools for the job cause we close abandoned mines for the mine reclamation program here in colorado!looks like i just had one valve a little to tight.i adjusted them all one more time hooked up the gas tank let it fill the carb bowl and choked it and it started up pretty good.thanks for the suggestions guys.have fun and keep those cats purrin'!!!Cat happyRockerdude

It turns the 28's fairly well. Here is a video of him trying to climb a wet clay hill with them. Decent amount of wheel speed for a 454.

This video was taken before the wheel spacers, lift, and carb were replaced. Mostly just stock bearcat with 28's
