Re: Change from Holley to Quadrajet, must change timing?
Well, guys, it went from bad to worse. Adjusted timing back to 8 degrees and worked a bit better less flatspotting coming off idle. But after everythings gets warmed up and drive around town the idle fluctuates from 800 on down to below 450 and stalled a couple of times. It does not sound right. No fun! I'll be taking the requisite pictures with the Quadrajet in there with associated hardware as I'm selling the car, then I'll put the Holley back in for smooth riding.
Will take the Quad back to the builder at the machine shop and leave it with him for a few days. As I already asked him if it was doable and he indicated it was. I also told him if it was too much trouble I'd send it to a pro shop like the Carb Shop to have it redone. A little late now as I'm in hock to him for the work done so far.
