Re: throttle plate swap?

Yes, you can, but the new hybrid carb will have a dead spot when opening the secondaries.

600 DP has 66 primary, 73 secondaries, Prim PV is 65, Prim discharge is .028, Sec nozzle is .032.

If you do decide to run the primary metering plate on the secondary side, sec power valve would be half, ie, 35.

I think he's talking about the base plate.

I'm not sure if they're the same or not. Look at Holleys web site for what you have and see if they're the same part number.
