Get it jetted right and it will probably pass
308 would work best on a 450 -550 holley
running rich could be
float levels too high
excessive fuel pressure --use a regulator in the fuel line
damaged power valve diaphragm-- subject to burning holes in the diaphragm on back fires
the idle mixture screws incorrectly adjusted
there are speed shops with chassis dynos that will be able to tune the carby correctly so talk with them about the carby size and the problem

Slightly worked v6 motor and need appropriate carby to fit


I suppose you are thinking holley . Unless you have drastic rework done then most 3 to 4 litre engines will run good with a 450 or 500 holley. Personally I would go for the 450 as too much fuel tends to put out the fire and the full potential of the engine is lost

1983 olds mobile cutlass supreme v 8 5.0 spark plugs keep geting black


black spark plugs indicate a rich fuel mixture and that is a carby problem. If you are running a holley then check the power valve as they have a habit of cracking or failing after a few back fires and this will allow excess fuel to by pass the main jets and blacken the plugs. Check float levels and air filters.

350 holley diagram


Check for vacuum leaks--pipe to base of carby for distributor---vacuum brake hose. Check float levels check power valve diaphragm is not burnt or has a hole. Check the gasket at the base of the carby Screw both idle mixture right in then back each 2and 1/2 turns . Use the throttle until you can get the engine to run and reduce throttle until it idles on the jets.. Check engine timing and correct firing order.

For those like me with a good old fashioned Holley type carb, here's a real nice video on the basics. He's gonna be doing more in-depth videos in the future. This cat flat out knows carbs!

I have a 1978 ford inline six has a newer holley card having hard time adjusting it. Runs great at lower rpms and idel but when you drive it loses power and backfires.


As you know, you have one of two things going on. it is running too rich or too lean. Run it hard for 15 minutes pull the plugs and check for black, wet looking soot = rich. Brownish, whitish dry looking soot = lean. Be sure your vacuum advance on the carb is hooked up to the proper port. Check the full advance of the timing with a light to be sure you have proper advance during rev up. You want 22 degs. full advance. If you have a pull choke try to close the choke to see if that will level out the hi end. If that works you are running to rich. adjust as necessary to lean it out. Too big a carb can also be your problem. For the best carb to engine size double the cubic inch of you engine. If your engine is a 290 ci you max size carb should be approx 550 cfm, Now if you engine has a hi rpm cam profile you have to factor in needed cfm at hi rpm. Thats why such and engine for racing will not have good bottom end or low rpm power. Sounds like you have just the opposite going on. Which can still be caused by a over sized carb. Too much fuel not enough air or room in the engine to burn it.

Just wondering if you can tell me how many cfm a 48ida flows


Mate.It pretty much flows the number.IE 500 holley is 500cfm.48,s are 480.Thats a big bit of gear for an rx7.Just make sure the metering pump for the oil injection into the carbs are upgraded,otherwise the motor will cook the apex seals every week.It would not hurt to up the oil pressure by 2 lb if you are going to rev the motor over 7400rpm.Are you putting side draught or down draught.Hope you go well!

Strong order of gas fumes and black residue on spark plugs


The jets in the carb are too big for a 302 with a stock cam. Take it to a carb shop and have them replace the jets with stock jets. (Or DIY and hope). Whne you converted from FI to carb did you replace fuel pump to get correct 7 1/2 psi pressure at carb inlet? FI pumps put out 50+ psi and a regulator maintians pressure at the injectors on the order of 35 psi.. Of course, that much pressure would force inlet needle valve out of it's seat and would probably flood carb totally, but, check the fuel pressure at the carb just to be sure. Good luck. 302's rule!!!!
PS - Check cam specs - FI engine has different cam - intake duration is longer if I remember correctly. Been a while since I got inside an engine...

2008 nissan altima a/c issues Last week the car stopped blowing cold air. After doing a pressure test, the low/high readings were both around 100. I assumed that the compressor wasn't kicking on. The compressor clutch had been working until this issue started but there was a noise that sounded like it was going bad. It had 100K miles on it so I replaced it. I also replaced the condensor (due to some damage on the front), the drier, and expansion valve. The only original component that showed a leak when I checked with my UV light was the drier....right at the based of the LP switch. After getting everything buttoned up i pulled vacuum on it for an hour and it held at 29". I then closed the valve and turned the pump off and let it sit for another hour. It was still holding at 29". I hooked up the freon to my manifold gauge and turned the car on with the a/c going. I charged the system until the low/high pressure was 37/190. The air was blowing colder about about 55 degrees. I thought it would be colder but it was an improvement. Once complete and everything disconnected, I turned the car off and went inside. I came back out a few minutes later and cranked the car....compressor wouldn't come on and warm air resumed. I ended up evacuating the system again and repeated the vacuum/recharge process again....cold air around 55 degrees. I reached over and turned the MAX A/C button on, the compressor went off and the warm air was back. I do not know if these two things are related but I also noticed that the condensor/radiator fans are not running at all. Could this be a sensor? Any help would be appreciated. I know enough about this stuff to be dangerous so if you give some tips, please simplify the best you can. Sometimes people give advice they forget that the little details stump us novices at times. ha. Thanks
