big red is running like @#%^

i 2 nights ago i decide to swap out my old ****y 2 barrel and intake and replaced it with a edalbrook intake and a holly 4 barrel. once i did this i discorved many probelems. to start off my kick down link age is to short(the metal bar not the lines) and also i think the torque converter is shot. when i start up my truck it will idle fine but as soon as i drop it in to drive it putts out on me unless i give a some gas extreamly lightly. once it gets going its fine but i dont know what is causing this.i think the crab just needs some adujsting but buddies tell me its the torque converter. if any one knows of ways to fab up some kick down linkage and to figure out why i putt out let me know thanks......byu the way its a 1979 bronco ranger with a 351m with a c6 trans[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img][img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img][img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: big red is running like @#%^

Holley should have a leaver that will adapt your linkage.
Check thier web site for your application.
As for the poor performance, I'm thinking you have a vacuum leak. Partialy cover the the primary air horn with your hand at idle, if the RPM's go up you have a Vac leak. You can use some spray carb/brake clean to find out where. At idle spray along the mani/head head seam, also under the carb.
Holly carbs norm run rich so you prob have a big leak.
Couple of thing to check, 1 tighten both fuel bowls, 2 cheack the float level, both bowls.
Also make sure your timing is between 4 and 10 degrees advanced.
Good luck
