A friends now rig ('85 GMC 3/4 ton) has one of them edelbrock performer carbs on the stock manifold with the adaptor it looks like. When getting on hils the thing likes to load up and die and you have to hold it flat to the floor to restart it. My Q-jet has no problems. Would it be worth the while to find a stock carb and sell the edelbrock one? Is there some adjustment we can do? Thanks for the help

<font color=green>If you're talking about real steep hills when off road then the problem is that the needles and seats leak when the carb is at an extreme angle. Edlebronk makes a spring loaded needle and seat kit that, when combined with altered float settings that are explained in the instructions, virtually eliminate the problem. I had the same problem, but after adding the kit it has worked great. Part # 1465 from Edelbrock.
Howdy, I have the Edelbrock Q-Jet on my 82 3/4 ton, Goodwrench 350 crate motor, Performer manifold, headers and duals, Accel distributer, Crane Energizer 272 cam, 3:73:1 gears. It runs great, best carb I've ever owned, I have two of the Edelbrock Performer (Carter) carbs, Anyone want to buy them from me ?
