SOURCE: 1973 Mustang carburetor replacement.

it would be easier to buy the adapter but holley al;so makes intake manifold for this problem they are pricey but you get the full 600cfms with an adapter you wont get as much oomph out of it but and adapter is a good idea especially when you dont have 300 to blow on the manifold

SOURCE: Where is the rich/lean Carburetor adjustment

Looking at the front of the carburator, at the base of the carburator you will see 2 screws with a spring on each. 1 on one side, 1 one the other.

Have a 1976 mercedes 450sl wiring has been chew on car sat. motor runs if you pour gas in it i have 3 wires i cant see were to go one is at the frontunder dist cap two are in the back single wires round...

If it runs when you pour gas into the intake then stops you have a bad fuel pump. In 1976 most used car orators. This being a German auto at that time... Maybe had the early fuel injection using the lamda (sp?) Mechanical system... If it does then you need a mechanic with experience on mechanical fuel injection.

1987 threequrter ton chevy 350 moter with quadura jet carb running rich an smokeing

either the float is sticking, when it is running use the back of a screwdriver and rap the bowl and see if this helps, or the jets need adjusted, start with the right one first, turn in untill the motor starts to lag then open it up untill the rpm stops climbing, do the same with the left one also, see if this helps. let me know.
