Re: Is a strong petrol smell normal for a c351 with a holly 650 double pumper?
Yeah, its sort of normal. I run a 750DP, but can mainly smell it after a drive when its parked in the driveway. If it is excessivly smelly, it could be its just too big for the motor. When my stall convertor was too small, and the motors rpm was pulled down too low, it would dump in some fuel, but not burn it correctly. Also make sure the floats arn't sticking or are too high.
Other than that, i can allways smell fuel around my old carbied clevo.
