Id also like to do some work to get more power. any suggestions?
If you have an adjustable secondary air valve carb, you can run it and it will do OK. If you don't have an adjustable air valve, the carb still may work for you, but either way it is not what would be the first choice for that engine.
If you have to make do w/it, you might need to change the jetting and/or step up springs and/or metering rods, but that will depend on how it runs and what the plugs look like, and whether the engine is rich (black exhaust on acceleration) or lean (pings and has poor performance). HERE
is the manual. With the info from it and from Edelbrock Performer Series Carburetor- Complete Guide to Set-Up, Tuning, and Performance Jetting
, and for reference- Detailed Rebuild Instructions
, you can go about adjusting it for better performance.
But like any "performance" engine, before tuning the carb for best performance you need to look into setting up the ignition timing and the timing curve. More on that here
