First post on the forums, hopefully I can get some help. My wife just surprised me with my 69 camaro project for christmas. I've had the car
for 10 years but never had put it all together, now its a driver, best wife ever.
Anyway, it's got a 350 with roller rockers, camel hump heads, edelbrock intake, mallory ignition
system and distributor, headers, and a speed demon 750 carb (#1402010V).
I had my uncle who's a very experienced mechanic
set the timing for me which he did slightly advanced as its a high performance engine.
The problem I'm having is it seems like its dumping too much fuel in or something. I'll be cruising along in 2nd gear about 15-20 mph and then I'll jam on the gas and the engine
will bog down like crazy then rev up. Or when I'm going about 30-40 in 3rd gear and I put it to the floor I can feel it hesitate. It idles great and doesnt have a miss or anything, revs up super strong, just has those two issues which dont seem normal. The car is very driveable and runs strong but just doesnt feel like its at peak performance.
The float levels check out fine, fuel
about halfway up and its a new carb. Nearly everything on the engine is new except for the block and heads.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
