Post 86 monte ss converter and carb question

I recently purchased an 86 monte ss and would like to know if my lockup converter will work on a 72 400sbc engine?Also;the 400 is near stock,with only a basic cam change to help it breath better.What cfm edelbrock carb do you suggest for basic street use to 5000 rpm?

should work fine but you are going to need a lockup switch,get the switch off a mid 80s chevy truck that had a lockup tranny and no computer its on the firewall behind the distributor it has a vac line and elec conn. to tranny and field, take the whole set up,the boneyards are full of them. For a carb i would use the 600, while in the junkyard get a vacume distributor,the computer unit won't work with a non-computer carb
