That's supposed to be the "street hemi" orange. It will be better once there are a few coats on there to get a better feeling for the colour.

First coat of paint. It should be in the car tomorrow





  If it can go wrong, it will.  Last minute decision to put on a new Eddy carb made more work. The freshly cleaned and painted intake has bores too small for the Eddy. We pulled the intake off the 440 and it's out to get cleaned and then repainted. That will be ready in the morning. Also threw a pertronix at him. He did a good job of engine bay clean-up today though.

Very nice! No criticism, because I don't know if true, but I keep
hearing bad things about Edelbrock carbs from a lot of sources, anyone
got experience? I know several guys who tried them and went back to
Holleys for example.

They are about equal, some adjustments for each may be needed, but overall they are a good carb, better for street applications than Holleys at times, maybe jsut a hair less performance oriented so good for a stock application. What size is it? a 413/440 should have at least a 650cfm rating for good running stock, barely warmed over cam application.

It's a 1411 Eddy (750 CFM) electric choke and we used a comp XE268H, and put in the Pertronix as well. Ran the same carb on my 69 300 and got acceptable performance and mileage.

I never had a problem with the one I used when I had my 68 Barracuda, had the 850, converted to electric chock, ran like a beast, that built 360 , loved all that CFM it was getting, never had a response problem, like the Holley that was on the engine for break in.
