SO what sits on top of your engine?
« on: February 20, 2008, 01:31:49 PM »

Tommorow i'm pickin up that holley 770 4bbrl, Electric choke, vaccum secondaries.

The bearing is done, and so is that mount.

This will be the first new carb i'll have encountered. Luckily I worked out a payment plan for this, so the 300 bucks wont kill me. It's good to have a buddy at NAPA.

SO whats on your ride?

And why.

A P.O.S Edelbrock 850 that has something wrong with it.
"sneezes" and stalls when cold and sometimes when "Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration" is called upon at WOT!!
I never was very good with carbs.

I put an Edelbrock 750 cfm on mine, but also installed the Edelbrock Performer intake.  I can't see puting a better carb on top of the factory intake.
 
The problem with ED carbs from the factory is they are jetted lean.  You can purchase a jet kit for less than 60 bucks from Summit.  It comes with new jets, springs, and metering rods.  When done right it's goodbye pinging!

Let's remember that a Carter AFB on a '66 440 was a mere 625cfm.  It was jetted for the premium fuels from that day.  The stock AFB on my '66 NYer ran like a champ on Sunoco 94 with a little octane boost.  (You shoulda taken a ride in it after a shlop of 100 octane low-lead AV-gas...  )
 
The modern Eddy/Carter carbs are jetted for today's engines and gasolines, hence LEAN!  A stock intake versus an aftermarket intake is not the issue.  A new AFB lookalike will need a little TLC to perform well on a vintage engine and modern gas.  Our older engines required better fuels.  Even the lower octane gasolines from THAT day were a better quality when compared to today's water-and-dirt-will-burn.
 
Before you cut down a carburetor or intake choice, put some REAL gas in the tank!  It aint' cheap... but every local-yocal airstrip offers it.  I challenge you to a comparison to see and feel what I mean.  Todays automotive gasolines are pathetic...
 
I still vote for an Edelbrock 1406 for any Mopar big block!  I like to eat goooood food and so does your engine!

well my install today was a huge embarassing failure...

so... tommorow i get to try it all over again.

as of now, im leaking gas, not really getting a good spark, and everything is in the way of everything else: I.E. the coil interferes with the vacuum advance, which interferes with the fuel line... this sucker is woah bigger than the 600 that was on there... i also cant seem to decifer this ones multiple vacuum hook ups... there on on the back, two upfront, and one on the side.

on the plus, i bought the Chrysler linkage, and other than the fact that i forgot how i set up the gas pedal. it looks quite splendid.
