Re: Holley Carbs

On the back of the edelbrock carb (Where the weights for the secondary air plate are at) gas will collect in these areas. When this
happened I could smell raw gas in the cab of my RC. I recently had a Q-jet tuned for my RC. Other than the vacuum advance being
connected to manifold instead of ported vacuum it was running pretty good (even the choke worked). About a week after this the
battery and alternator went bad, and now after I've replaced these the engine still runs good but idles like crap. I've tried everything
(idle mixture screws, timing, idle speed, carb cleaner, new wires, cleaned plugs) but nothing seems to help. Any ideas???
My next test will
be to put the edelbrock carb back on and see how it runs.
