VK EFI manifold question

Can anyone tell me how the distance from the manifold face to the outside of the runner curve measured horizontally on a VK 6 cylinder EFI manifold?
Also, how well does a black six head flow? Would it be any improvement over something like a stage 3 YT head?
David
Just tossing an idea around in my head.

Windows

Having trouble with Sedan Windows. The bottom bracket which fits to the window is coming off all the pieces of glass. Is this a common problem? Is it the regulator or the bracket which hold the glass which is most likely at fault?

Fuel in Sump update 2

Image: 

Checked the needle and seat and found it moved though was a bit notchy. Examined the needle and found some horizontal score marks. I polished up both the needle and seat. Re-installed and it, test fired and the bowl no longer over fills. It idled pretty good. Didn't wanna test drive as the rego has just lapsed, but all seems good. Eventually I will install electric fuel pump and fuel regulator as suggested.

unknown HG

found this pic on another site. Car looks like its had a respray but if it has been kept to original specs, then there cant be to many of these about. Perhaps it was an ex services car as the decal on the door indicates? Perhaps its just some sort of tribute car?? maybe someone knows. Looks tidy and a bit different. Id be happy with that red interior

VE engines

I believe there were some problems with the first lot of V6 engines when the VE first came out. Anyone here familiar with them?
I would like to know when the factory sorted the problems. Looking at a low ks example tomorrow.

350 holley carby issue, car goes to stall when i screw the idle set screw to idle higher

350 holley carby issue, car goes to stall when i screw the idle set screw to idle higher, which I want to do because the engine is close on dying in gear at idle. any ideas why it would doo that? i backed off the float in case it was flooding, no change, i raised the float a fract in case it was too lean, no change, I used the mixture screws, it ran a bit smoother but as soon as i tried to raise the idle, it almost died.
thanks in advance for any help
Grant
