it has happened to me that sometimes q-jets never work well again, no matter what I make to them, I have several on the shelf that look brand new but they just don't work well, I think they wear out the internal passages or something like that because even after a through clean up and a new parts kit they just don't work well anymore.

stay away from the late models with the internal aneroid, they are the worst, and the electronic models just won't work, smog crap.

I firmly believe that the best improvement you can do to an old car/truck is buying a brand new carburator, I like holley's 1850 for SBC 350's
