Edelbrock on 392

Right now I am running a 73 International pick up with a 392, with an edelbrock performer series 600 CFM carburator. I bought the truck with the carburator on it and I would like to know what kind of jets, needles, and springs should be in it for this peticular engine. I know what the carb came with, but it runs excessivly rich anywhere above an idle. Can anybody help me with this?

I am also looking at lifting it, but nobody has a lift kit for it. I am trying to find some front lift springs that will work, from spring perch to shackle is 43" long and only 23" from the shackle to my center-pin. Does anybody know of any lift springs that can work with these measurements?

Re: Edelbrock on 392

Grind the rivets off the shackle hanger up front (rear of front springs), slide the hanger back to the next set of holes it matches up to - these are the holes the 2wd straight-axle trucks used.

Measure from there and you'll find a 73-87 Chevy leaf spring is a darn close match.

I ran the math and basically ended up with the idea that just about any Chevy 4" lift will net about 2" of lift on your typical 1/2T IH pickup or Travelall.

That is exactly what I was thinking of doing, except for using 3/4 ton dodge springs because I know where I can get 2 for 100 dollars which isn't too bad. Thanks for the reply though.
