Conflicting carb advice
six_sigma posted a topic in 1969-70 Technical ForumHey folks, So I have rebuilt roller 302 with an RPM intake, B cam and Tri-y's. I have an Edelbrock 1406 600cfm performer carb and it's running quite rich. I was told, and had read in a few places that a 500 CFM carb is really the way to go, so I found a used on for a good price that was on a V6 chevy motor. I installed the carb and I can't get the car to idle below 1K RPM, previously is was idling around 750-800 with a nice burble. So I go to a specialist carb rebuilder to ask if they have a jet and rod kit for the carb and the old guy says that the 500 is too small and the engine is going to run lean. so now I have 2 carbs and more confusion. Any of you guys care to add to my store of conflicting knowledge? Thanks in advance.
