Well, the engine is fine. It is where it should be temperature wise. I am referring to the heat that is being transferred to the carb from the engine; The fuel line routing is the same as it was with the q-jet, which had no problems, the rad is ok, coolant... That is all normal. Basically, I know it is in the carb because it ran fine with the q-jet, and nothing else has changed except for the carb swap. Also, I have read that the spacer with 4 holes is better on a dual plane manifold, and then I have also heard that it doesn't matter. Now I see you say an open one is better. I am a bit confused now about spacers, heh.
If I can keep the carb cool, I will likely have a better chance at getting the right jet/squirter combo. I hope a good spacer and the fixed cold-air intake will help with this.
Oh, forgot to mention, I have the whole Holley jet kit, from 64 to 99, and also have 4 different discharge nozzles (25,31,37,40) and I have tried many combinations but still face the same problem when the carb gets hot.
Thanks for the replies, and any further aid would be vastly appreciated.
