Need some help with debugging a 350/350 combo that followed me home the
other day..(its in a 73 Chevy truck). The PO had just installed an
Edelbrock 600CFM carb and the truck was running really poorly. The
transmission was kicking down at weird times and the engine was
surging/backfiring and I could not get it above 40mph. It starts right up
and idles fine. Then it started to overheat and I called it a day.
I need some help in determining which is the correct way to mount an
edlebrock carb. I am having issues with how the throttle cable is connected
and how the transmission kickdown cable is attached. The PO did not know
what she was doing and I am pretty sure the cables are installed wonky and
that they are the cause of my misery. There is no throttle return spring
the kickdown cable appears to be providing that function...? The Edelbrock
manual is useless because it says copy what was there before..but I don't
know what was there before...Can someone point me to a link with pictures of
this install done correctly? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This still has an original points type dist that looks a bit worn. Is it
worth the money to switch to the newer HEI dist?
I will try to have pics posted soon but any advice now would be greatly
