Red face 68 GTO build-up

I need some advice from ya'll. Ihave a 68 GTO w/ a new 400, Edelbrock intake & carb. I have screwed with the carb so much I'm tired of looking at it. I have a massive stumble/ hesitation off the line that I cant work out. I have been thinking of changing over to a Holley Street Avenger. Any suggestions? <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />

Question

Have you verified proper vacuum advance on the distributor and that the advance weights are not hanging up?

I do not know anything about those edelbrook carbs but when ever I have "Carb troubles" I run to Sally (rochester under bed) Most car guys have that one carb that works all the time on on every application. If you do not have one, I am positive that one of your budies does. Borrow his for a day!!!

My suggestion is to go to a Holley. I have a 69 GTO with a 400 engine and a Carter carb and it does the same thing. Just to make sure, try what Mr. Chickenhead said first.
