You will need a vacuum and Tach meter guage, when the highest vaccum/RPM reading is reached the air fuel is near perfect, make sure you start lean and slowly turn the mixture screws out ( or in depending on carb type) evenly, reset idle speed if ness, as it can increase allot. In order to meet emission tests and get better fuel economy I would lean each screw 1/4 turn from best vaccum/RPM setting. Also verify the ignition timing is correct before any adjustment is made and engine is at operating temp.

I need a vacuum diagram for a 1980 22RE engine w/ 2 bbl carb


I don't think your engine is a 22R-E as the E denotes electronic fuel ejection. For 1980 it should be just a 22R. I would not suggest slapping on another carb without expecting more work than just hooking up the original vacuum lines. Some lines you could cap off but others would need the vacuum and rerouting. There is plenty of info in the following blog on removing smog devices and extra vacuum lines here:
http://www.yotatech.com/f114/de-smogging-early-22r-205845/
There are also plenty of pictures and diagrams for your engine. Making a trip to your local junkyard might find you a 22R with a carb still attached but it's slim these days. I know this question is from January but if it's too late to help you than maybe it can help some one else.

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 jeep that I converted the 2 bbl carb to a single bbl carb and now can't keep it running. Starts great and quickly, idles very smooth and revs up properly for the first 2-3 minutes of running. ...


Sounds like your float height is incorrect in the carb. Hopefully it is a new carb, and not a used one you bought off of someone. Used carbs are not a good idea unless you have the knowledge to rebuild one.
