i think the wires are for the elec choke and the CCC controls to the carb which, i think, are for the metering rods and throttle position sensor. You don't need these if you are going to be switching to an edlebrock 750.
Why not stick with a non-computer Q-jet?
2) What type of distributor are you going to use? i'm not sure if you can run the CCC distributor WITHOUT the CCC carb. Or can you? Will look into this.
i have no idea on upstate ny emmissions laws and i am perplexed as to why anyone would want to live there in the first place. But that's just me.
