Re: what carb to use?
I already rebuilt it. I don't know which one it is offhand, i think it's a rochester m4mc. Whatever came stock on a 78 400 small block (thats what the truck had stock). I bought a rebuild kit and went through it, cleaned it up good, put it back together with all new gaskets, and it still runs like crap. it runs a little better now, it's acceptable if it's warm. But when you come to a stop you have to floor it for a second to get it to come off choke and to get the idle to drop down. It's kind of a PITA.
How much would that cost, to send the carb to jet and get it done up nice? And if i were to go with an edelbrock, what would be a good choice? I think the motor has a cam in it and it may be bored 30 over. That's what the previous owner said the previous owner told him, so... All i know is it's a small block with headers. And i don't plan on doing any modifications to it. It's my beater, any serious money will go into my other car first.
Thanks for the help.
