Edelbrock Carbs, I want some fellow owners inputs
I just figured that maybe we could all put our heads together and talk about these things, just Edelbrock. Sorry Holley guys, I like your carbs also but Ido not own one, that is why I want to talk about Edelbrock. I have a very good knowledge of everything inside of the carb, maybe not the technical names or all of their jobs but I know what and where everything is. I wanted to talk to some of the other Edelbrock owners and see if we can collaberate together and build the best damn Carbs we can out of em'. I run a 600cfm electric choke w/ a heat spacer, off-road needle and seat, and different metering rod and step up springs. I run it on a modified 350 chevy. I was wondering if anyone would collaberate with me about the float bowl settings you might have used with your off-road needle and seat. Even the Edelbrock techi, really nice guy, says that the book is wrong, we all know this. I was wondering what you all set yours at, I will have to check mine but I think that they were at 9 or 11/16, I forgot? Are there any other mods that you have made to the carb, if so what was the reason for the mod. Did any of you notice any mileage gains or just performance. I never did wuite understand what the purpose of the different step up springs was. I am at 4000 ft altitude and run the orange spring. I did not have the tools at the time to check which spring will work best but I now have access to any tool you could think of. My friends dad even has one of those engine spectro thingies, looks like an engine heart monitor. At any rate I would like to get performance input and also any input for the daily driver who succesfully got better mileage out of theirs.
Hopefully there are a lot of Edelbrock owners out there, otherwise this will die real quick. HAPPY JEEPIN
