You are atomizing fuel and the Fish carburetor was designed to operate on a vehicle that had a pressure regulated fuel pump, the design does not have an atmospheric pressure float bowl chamber, do your research, how could fuel delivery pressure not be of any consequence Suit yourself but I bet you waste a whole bunch of time demonstrating that regulated fuel pressure is critical to that carburetors performance.Yes the fuel line and filter are temporary but what is not correct is, as long as there is sufficient fuel in the bowl a fish carburettor won't care what the fuel lines are made of or the pressure before the needle valve also the fuel level is not critical, within limits.
I missed where you said it was a Fish.No, they are a after market "carburettor". The idea was, order your carb and one was pre-adjusted to suit your vehicle.
power gains over 20 percent at the time from just fitting one was common. They were first designed under Henry Ford's roof for the up coming ford V8 released 1932. But Ford decided there effort were better spent making cars not carburettors.
When I did my apprenticeship tuning weber's and su's was my bread and butter and I do like both.Should run a DCOE Weber. Now that would be interesting.

As I said David Visard liked the reece fish carbs and on the imp site there is dyno results on a mini showing a single
1 1/2" fish producing very similar results as a 40 dcoe 2 barrel, with each barrel larger by approx 2mm than the fish.
