How to calculate correct carb size…
Here’s a formula for working out the correct size of carb for your motor:
197.5 x 3.47 =685 cfm assuming 100% efficiency,but take it you did a good job on cams head exhaust etc we will use 80%
685 x 0.8 =548 cfm
Just substitute your engine size in cu” and your redline max revs in the above formula.
So if your carb is jetted and set right a 600 cfm will be perfect.Here’s a link for you to find the correct carb size for your motor.
PS. It does not help to overcarb your motor!
