Pig rich can be as simple of a fix as using a can of carb cleaner (use can directions), paying special attention to the air bleeds located in the air horn and just inside of the primary throttle bore.

Cost you < $3.00 to see.

The Q-jet does often suffer from leaking main wells. If yours is doing this, hold the throttle WFO, w/o pumping it- just mat the throttle and crank it up. Obviously, let off when it catches!

It never catches that's why i ordered the edelbrock, because i'm tired of fighting a losing battle. I just want to drive the car but i cant even make it down the driveway without it dying.

The edelbrock 1405 is a manual choke and the 1406 is the same carb with an electric choke . I put the electric choke kit on my 1405 and it works great .
