   Carb fire? You have some serious timing issues / distributor problems. While the carb is off you should probably pull the intake and reseal it with new gaskets for good measure. When I got the 300 it wouldn't idle if it's life depended on it. I tore off the intake only to find it was sealed with silicone and was all turned to jelly from the fuel. New gasket and intake vacuum and idle were restored to normal. Still skeptical of that distributor though.

Holley carbs are like cheap guitars--that harder you play 'em,the harder to keep 'em in tune.
But that is beside the point.

Road in 'er today....yeah he's still drivin it   Drove fine except from the horrid idle and the fact that she stalled on us a few times....   When he really gets on 'er she chugs along, I'm not an expert on cars, but it almost sounds like it's not gettin' enough fuel or air when taking off.  And then when it does go, it doesn't seem to be burning what it is getting.  A lot of backfiring through the pipes.  Hobby, it's his only means of transportation right now
