I used the 45 acp shells and saved that cash for another toy. If you have a gun club near your place just go and ask them for a few spent casings. They should give them to you. Just make sure you use spent casings and not new ones.
Damn , im a .40S&W owner and have plenty of spent brass casings layin around.....do you think it would be possible to use a .40 caliber?....if not ill just head over to the local gun range and collect some..

I'm not really a gun person so I can't help you in that dept. As an aside, I rewrote the AIS removal from Jstar in a Word document. If you want I could pm you this file. It's easier to follow than on the forum. Also once the elbows are loosened, I used a large allen key to wiggle them out using the lasso Jsatr mentions.

40 is way too small.....It's got to be a 45.

So far I did the lazy way and crossed the hoses like the diagram showed to see if that will lessen the backfires....then as soon as I get a hold of some .45 casings i will get rid of the whole system itself.... thanks everyone for all the great help!!!:D:D

Sounds like you just needed a pilot screw adjustment....

.38 special cartridges

If you don't want to remove the elbows going into the heads a 38 casing fits nicely.Maybe overkill but I put a little grey rtv on the outer shell and started it. I tapped it in with a 3/8 socket extension and a ball peen hammer. 357 should work as well though it is longer than the 38. I used one of the small Allen head screws that held in the assembly to screw into the small hose that goes to the carbs. I then stowed it out of the way. When I have the tank off I'll plug it at the carb. I used the brass ones, not the steel.

PM me your home address and they'll leave the great white north on Monday.
Done!!.... Thank you !! I really appreciate it, its been a real head ache trying to find spent casings around here in California, i guess this state being so terrified of many things people think that by giving me the spent .45 casings that im gonna use them to frame a murder or somthing.. hahaha :D:D
