  1. Edelbrock carb and sbc

    Engine
    Hey guys. I'm going through the motions trying to get my carb optimally done up as best I can, and have a few questions. First off, here's what I've got as far as the motor goes; - 355 sbc - Comp cams 276-tl56 - Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold - 3947041 cast iron heads (I've heard...
  2. Fuel line to carb

    Engine
    How are you guys running your fuel lines to your carb? I have rubber fuel line coming from the fuel rail, to the mechanical pump, to the carb, but I just learned that it's a little dangerous and I should use hard line. Can you post your setups so I can get an idea of what I need to do?
  3. Rich idle

    Engine
    Hey gents, I have a new crate 383 with a Holley 750. They set the carb at the factory base don their altitude which is about 2,000 feet higher. It's so rich that it burns my eyes if near an enclosed space and it gets in my clothes & beard. I've heard re-jetting it would work, or also changing...
  4. Engine not getting fuel

    Engine
    Hi everyone, Hopefully this is in the correct section. My car has been sitting in a garage with an empty tank for the past 3 years and I recently did some work to the drivetrain to get it running again. The last time I started the car (before garaging it) it started right up. Now, it seems...

  7. 327 with four barrel... in line filter or not

    Engine
    I have a '69 327 with a manifold from 70's and a quadrajet on top and only the fuel filter inside the carb. Is it a good idea to use an in line filter ( can or clear from the parts store) before the carb in addition to the small one inside the inlet of the carb?
  8. Carb Swap on 350...Help

    Performance
    I am currently trying to get my 68'RS running properly and I need a new carb but I'm not sure where to start. I currently have an old Carter 625cfm clone and I don't think trying to refurbish it would be worth it. I've looked at the Edelbrock Performer 1406 600cfm carburetor but it says...
