Question about Chevrolet 1500

1 Answer

I have a chevy 454 with a holley 750cfm, everyday driver. When I try and take off from a stop, it almost falls dead and then wants to take off, so I have to press the accelerator slowly. What makes my carb performs that way?

Swapping an edelbrock 750cfm to a 500 or 600


Yes the existing manifold will work. 750 is WAY over carbureting the engine you have here.

Just installed a holley 600 carb on a stock 305 Chevy truck 4 barrel is opening up but motor is bogging down should I go with hotter plugs advance timing or what?


Actually a Holley 600 is just a little too much for a stock 305. It would be better suited for a stock 350. You might try to lean the mix down a bit and reset the float a little higher. Holleys are good about dumping excssive fuel into the cylinders thus causing pitting on the cylinder walls. It would not hurt to advance the timing a couple degress then.

383 Stoker Chevy dies when I put it in gear


That converter should make stalling less of an issue, not more. (stall speed is higher than stock) Make sure that you have the cam degreed in properly, that you have the timing set properly (I'd use 8-12 degrees to begin) and make sure that you have no vacuum leaks.
With a stock converter, you shouldn't use any cam with more than 220 degrees duration...With the higher stall converter, you may get a few more degrees leeway. Also, the carb is too small for the application...should have at least a 750 dbl pumper or larger on there depending largely upon the car weight, gearing and what you have as far as intake and exhaust. (header diameter, length and design)...This should have been all figured out on paper before spending a dime for parts...Biggest mistake I see is people putting "mis-matched" parts together and expecting it to work (everything needs to compliment everything else)

454 on chevy won't idle


Did you check your timing? You may have the timing to advanced to compensate for the clogged filter, change your timing and then see if it will idle.
