clear site plugs

Anyone have a set of these on there Holley ?

Just a heads up. I went to lower my float level alittle today and couldnt see threw one of mine. It was very cloudy. I pulled it out and the threaded end was very soft and gummy.

I played with the needle and seat, put the plug back in and when I fired the car up fuel came shooting out of the vent tube. So I adjusted more, no differance.

I decided to pull the float bowl and found the threads came off the plug. Cleaned out the bowl, replaced the plug and no more problems.

If you run a set take a look at them. They dont seem to stand up to fuel very well.

I have them, and they haven't turned cloudy yet, but they are difficult to see exactly where the fuel level is at. I wound up taking them out anyway to set the floats.

Ya I like the Demon site windows, but the site plugs become useless pretty quick
