That holley would work just fine, you may have to change the jets, but that is easy

My car pops through the carb when I put a load on the engine like going up hills it runs fine n park even revving the engine it only does this n drive its a 78 monte carlo with a 305. Hei


most likely cause is a bad spark plug or spark plug wire. all though the 1978 305 ci V8 had a bad problem with camshafts, if new wires and plugs don't fix the problem then you might have to have someone check the camshaft lubes.

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.

Some tune up questions and trouble shooting a running issue.


Actually.....the 5.0 in the 92 Olds Custom Cruiser is a 307 CI 5.0 L engine believe it or not....The Caprice had a 305 CI 5.0 L engine. There is very little difference, but I have one as well and I found that out through the local dealer. The pulsation you feel when driving sounds like a transmission problem to me, but I think it could be from the timing chain issue. I do not know the timing setting for the car, but maybe this will help you to find it. I would try to make sure which motor you actually have first, the 305 or the 307, and then ask the mechanic at the local dealer what the setting should be.
