Re: Carbuerator tuning on \'85 2.8L V6

With this small of an engine, I'm about 100% positive that 500cfm is about 50-60% too much carbuerator for this puny little engine... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I noticed it's a major PITA to adjust it... I wish I had just learned sometime to keep my hands off of the stupid thing... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I guess I'll have to try and play around with it some more... I had it running decent, but it still won't idle... I have a holley 850CFM on "Behemoth" (my 'burb) and I love the thing, it's so simple to tune it, much much easier than the Crapchester... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Do you know the part # for the edelbrock 2 pc. manifold?
