thanks for the responces, the carb is getting fuel, you can smell it when you are under the hood. I havn't checked fuel filter though, i will check it, but i think it is probably a carb problem. I hate it when people try and tell me i don't know anything though, some people that were there tried to tell me that the carb couldn't handle all the fuel being pumped to it by the fuel pump. "go get yourself a holley, they are cheap and bolt right on" Never seen a cheap holley. Then they watch as i open it up and take the air filter off and they tell me i have "too much carb" and the carb is flooding the engine, while it is running 45 down the street. I am with you guys on this though, gotta be either a clog or something wrong with the new goodies.

sounds like the accelerator pump to me i had the same problem with my chevy, it would idle fine but all i had to do is look at the gas pedal and it would die. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Hmm,if the bowls gets fuel its gotta be dirt in carb(if you floor the pedal,squirters gives a nice shot?if,it should atleast promise with few squirts ).
thats the broblem atleast in here that you dont know how knoledgeable the writer is so dont take it personally... sounds weird anyway. I dont have any bad word about carter afb carb. not like holley...
You sed you have return line also? stock mechanical pump or electric? I gues it really doesnt matter but just curious. btw does it wake up if you give it gas straight in the manifold?
is it 750cfm? atleast that works ok at sbc 400. maybe too big for now because it needs very big jets when full throtle and hi rpm but i can get it work pretty good anyway. no dead spots at any situation.(and more torque than tires can handle
