Just finished replacing the quad on my '83 Z28 (305) with an edelbrock perfomer 600, hooked everything up and now car won't start. It tries to run briefly (2-3 secs) then stalls. When I open the primaries up, manually w/ the car off, smoke wafts out the carb. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Sounds like it's running out of fuel. Plugged fuel filter maybe? Or could your fuel pump be defective?

Why did you replace the carb to begin with - was it to fix a problem or was everything fine before?
