I agree, jumped timing. Check to make sure the dist is tight. Than check for tdc on the #1 cylinder. When the #1 cyl is TDC the rotor should be pointing to that wire on the cap. Take the cap off while checking. Also is easier to turn motor by hand without plugs in motor.

Hi I just want to how much easier is it to tune an edelbrock carb then a quadrajet carb


Edelbrock cars are square bore and Quadrajets are spreadbore make sure you have either an adaptor plate if running stock manifold or you'll have vacuum leaks, as far as tuning Edelbrocks are EZ. 2 air/fuels screws that only effect idle, turn in till runs rough then back out 1/4 to 1/2 turn on both, that will set it for economy, for performance engines, turn out or counter clockwise till runs rough then turn back in clockwise 1/2 to full turn, set idle ***** and your good to go, the two vacuum ports in front are distributor advance, the right side closest to manifold is full time vacuum hook there for performance or left side for economy.. if you buy a new edelbrock carb it will run great right out of the box, also has a set/up DVD, for novice Mechanics, ez to change metering rods too, hope this helps, and in my opinion Quadrapuke carbs are junk.

I have 1982 ford f150 with a 351windsor in it, the stock venturi 2bbl carb is leaking, what type of carb would fit the manifold without changing it? Also is the distributor supposed to be able to turn when...


Edelbrock and Carter both make 2 bbl. carbs for 351W. that will fit stock intake.
Distributor should not turn on it's own. Only with the engine running

How do I keep the vaccuum lines when installing an Edelbrock carb. on a 454 w/ dual air pumps.


Hi there,
So I am guessing that u r adding a new carb.
Before u take all vaccuum lines off, put white paper tape on them
an number them where they go.
When u get new carb look to see if it has all the ports that the
old carb did. Or why not??
Should not be that tuff though!

Should I rebuild my Ford Bronco 351 Windsor Holly 4 bbl carb or replace it with an Edelbrock carb?


In all my experience, if you know how to correctly tune a edelbrock then go with that, but, holley has outstanding carbs that can muster up to an output of 1,200hp. it would be much cheaper to et a rebuild kit from say, o'reillys, 20-45 dollars depending on which one you have.
I have a 1985 Bronco 351w 4x4, i just rebuilt my holley and she runs smooth

I am going from a qudrajet carb to an Edelbrock 600 with manual choke. I am not sure how the linkage switches over. I am working on a 1985 chevy 4x4 with a sb 350


If your staying with the stock intake manifold the edelbrock wont fit unless you install a adapter plate.And i would advise you not to install it will not seal properly.I would install a edelbrock intake manifold and carburetor as a matched set.You can purchase a edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold from advance auto parts that's designed for your vehicle.

Popping thru exaust while running down road


Your timing might be too far advanced? Try retarding it slightly. Other than that you might look at the exhaust valves. One could be bent or adjusted too tight.
