1. Could be opened without leaking fuel or disconnecing anything
2. Use emulsion tubes
3. Change the jets without taking the float bowls off
4. Had 4 float bowls to reduce slosh
5. Had 4 needles and seats for more flow
6. Float level adjustment from the top
7. Submerged needles
8. O-ring seals
9. Looked better than a die casting
10. Change boosters easily

Good sentiment Coloradoracer, but in reality that isn't how you or the majority of the market place acts. I've been building the "better mouse trap" since the late 1990's and the "market" has yet to fully accept or embrace my carbs. Sure, there are people who are naturally skeptical and there are people who are afraid they will loose what little grip they have on their claim to being an "authority" or "expert" in the field so there is naturally the competitive sabotage and backstabbing.
Point is, this carb is subject to all the same hurdles and obstacles if it's anything more than a billet Autolite 4100 from 1960 or it's copycat spin offs the Holley 4010 and Summit carb.
Don't get me wrong though, these obstacles and hurdles are all surmountable.
