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.

I have an edelbrock 1401 500 cfm manual choke carb it needs adjusted. How do I adjust it to get more power and mpg? It is on a chevy 305 also


The only way to deal with these bad boys is to re-jet!!! go on line to RIPSPEED or alike give them your car details and your needs for the carbs and a jetting kit will be sorted for you.Just remember with more power the less your M.P.G!!!! Good-luck...

My 85 chevy truck idles real high when you first start it and after 3 minutes you hit the gas and it will idle down to normal could it be out of timing or is there a fast idle screw. tried nothing yet 1985...


thats the electric choke. It warms up the engine so that it will idle properly. It may be sticking. Personally i hate the things and just remove and just hold my foot on the gas a bit when cold starting.

But check and see that the solenoid is not sticking and that the other valves on the carb are not sticking some wd-40 should help.

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 just put it on and i noticed that my 4barrel is not working and it is a manual choke it only works when i do it from under the hood what am i missing it is a 600 cfm edelbrock


the vacuume secondaries on those carbs wont activate just by hitting the gas in the driveway unfortunately. you have to have a load on the engine which makes it dificult to know if it is working. you can put a piece of tape from your secondary linkage to your carb body and see if when you drive it the tape pulls off. just make sure your air cleaner is on so you dont **** the tape into your engine. good luck!

If it is a 4 barrel you need to run a higher octane than a 2 barrel. You need to check your timing and readjust your mixture and air flow.
