Well I got the Holley on the Windsor. I put a 1 inch aluminum 4 hole spacer under it ( since I had it). After fixing a leak from the diaphragm for the pump shot I fired it up.

Actually I didn't even have to pump the throttle.. it just fired up. It idled a ton better than the AFB and the throttle is really crisp.

Since I can't find my Holley/Mopar adapter I'm gonna have to buy one..before I can go for a drive.

The Accel cap I bought must be for an aftermarket distributor as it is WAY too wide for my dizzy..

Aftermarket distributor sounds reasonable. As far as the carb goes, the spacer is a good idea for a stock manifold (assuming on my part), but keep an eye on the mileage, and if it has gone to heck, she is overjetted, common on Holley carbs, so people don't get so much backfiring, but at the expense of gas mileage. After you determine your mileage has gone downhill, get a probe in the exhaust to determine how rich she really is, keeps one from guessing and fiddling so much.

I'm running the M-1 Aluminum dual Plane Intake.. it is quite similar to the 383 Magnum Intake but makes considerable more power than the iron intake. I used to have it on my drag car before it made it's home here..

Stock the Holley runs 63's in the front and the plate on the secondaries should work out to around a 65 jet..

I hope the mileage doesn't go all to hell.. I was getting 16.5 mpg with the AFB..

Well I got the Holley on and running... I hooked the vacuum advance to the full vacuum port and the idle went up and then started reving up and down....even adjutsing the idle circuit didn't help..

When I hooked the vacuum advance up to the timed port it was fine...

I'm having linkage issues when I'm using the 1 inch spacer so I might pull it off and run the holley right on the manifold.. The bottom end was a lot better with the spacer though..

The throttle cable isn't long enough and there isn't enough thread to set the kickdown lever...

I'll save the spacer for a future project..

Stick the vacuum gage on her again and see if she cycles up and down. If there is a rhythmic up then down and back up, power valve is bad or wrong. To get the correct size, take the vacuum reading that is steady the most (the highest reading), divide by two and add two, and get that power valve number (16, is 8 plus 2 is a 10.5 power valve, etc.). Vacuum should be on ported, otherwise the advance works backwards, meaning it will be on full time all the time which is wrong at idle, hit the gas and vacuum drops and you lose the vacuum but may come back too quickly as rpm build. I seem to recall having to make a second bracket (or weld a one inch extention into the original cable holder that attaches to the intake manifold), essentially moving it up to a working angle.

I pulled the inch spacer off.. The I noticed that the shot was out of adjustment. I adjusted it to the limited but can not get the 0.015 clearance. I'm thinking that someone must have changed the stock adjustment on the shot cam.. grrrrrr...

The car is still acting the same as it did with the AFB... feels like a miss as I'm driving.. I guess it's time to check the plug wires, new points and cap...

It's nice to have no stumble from a dead stop.. but I hope my mileage doesn't go to crap running this holley ...

It takes two 3/8ths or 7/1ths wrenches to turn the bolt/nut against the spring to adjust. One wrench just spins.

I just noticed that the crew and nut for the accelerator pump in upside down... no wonder I can't get the adjustment.. LOL Someone must have had it off at some point...

I'll fix that when I get home...

Well I got the vacuum gauge hooked up again.. I have 15 in at idle in park, 13 in gear.. a bit lower than before...

The big change is that now I get 17 to 19 inches driving down the road at 55.. before I would only get 16 at the most... WOW

What do you think increased the vacuum like that?

Better pull through the venturii themselves. Did adjusting the squirter help?

I didn't get a chance to adjust it.. what I saw was during the drive home..

I might pull out the squirters this weekend . since they were playing with the accelerator pump I want to see if they put in large squirters.. these look pretty large. Any idea what size the stock one would be?

Well.. the miss was the points.. I wore the piece that rides on the cam down and the points where barely opening. I put in a set of Bluestreak points that has a small piece of greased felt that runs on the cam. I also put a little bit of food grade grease on the cam ( just a thin layer) from the pizzeria to give it some extra lube.

Runs really good... what I thought was strange was that I had to reset the idle screws after I changed the points... weird..
