should be the same as a holley, set your floats like you would on a holley, see what size jets you have in it and what size power valve, too see what size power valve you need, take how much vacume the engine makes devide by 2 and that will get the size you need, now jets there should be a 6-8 spread like for instands 69 primarys 75-77's in the secondarys.. 200$ sounds like a great deal on that carb, and if your going to just street it no raceing id still go with the 5.7 rods alot of plp use the 6" rods for extreme raceing use, it will be a very happy motor with the 5.7 rods!

got the cam broke in

Hey guys,
Well i got the cam broke in and after that i was trying to get the timing fine tuned and i heard a tick tick from the right side of the motor???

At first i thought i had a exhaust leak but i could't find one so i took off the valve covers and started it back up!

I found that the #6 intake rocker isn't getting any oil what would cause that? I took off the rocker and the pushrod to make sure i had no plugged up passages and all was good there. So what now guys??? do i have a collapsed lifter or spun cam bearing? Im thinking of tapping on the pushrod while it is sitting on the lifter (maybe its stuck)?


p.s. happy 4th of july
