Carb Adjustment(s)

I have a friend who has a '79 1/2 ton P/U 2WD. He recently inherited a '78 olds delta 88. It has 35,000 original miles is in excellent condition. He was able to sell the car minus the drive train for over 4grand. Anyhow, he want's to put the 350 engine in his truck because his is just about dead. The Carb is going to need rebuilt which is no problem, but is there any adjustments needed, and if so could you be a detailed as possible it's been over 15 years since I messed with one and I'm more familar with fuel injection. Thanks in advance-Bob [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img].

Re: Carb Adjustment(s)

Can't answer the carb question, but seems to me, and someone correct me if I am wrong, but aren't the olds 350's a little different? I thought I was told once that on the top part of the motor in the back that bolts up to the tranny, there was a slight difference. Like one had a higher hump than the other. Not positive, but it is something he could easily verify by looking at his current motor in comparison to the one he is looking to put in. Don't hold me to it, but I'd rather have him verify it before getting all ready to slide it in and not have it bolt up.
