grahm, there are alot of things to consider when jetting a carb for maximum hp. The air quality will determine how much jet the combination will allow before the MPH starts to fall off. A wild quess would be 2 or 3 sizes above (richer) factory.

Graham - Get a good Holley carb book, do some research, and set your carb back to factory spec's. These links will help too...

With the carb at factory spec's, you have a good base to start from. Learn about each circuit that the carb is comprised of and know if your carb is over or under sized for your engine. From there make some baseline test runs, read your plugs and decide if you are too rich or too lean and adjust accordingly... Don't go more than 2 jet sizes up or down at a time and test and verify the change before going further...

There just isn't a way anyone can say run 68 primary and 76 secondary jetting and you'll be good to go!! Even someone with years of tuning experience would need to know everything from plug heat range, compression, cam spec's intake type, exhaust header size, mufflers, pipe size and alot more detailed info to make an educated guess for you...

MY guess, since no one really gave you an approximation, would be 67-68 primary and 74-76 secondary. This should get you in the ballpark, you should go and buy a few sets of cheap plugs (autolites) and test and tune from there. You also might want to pick up a heat range or two different after your initial set with its adjustment.
