I agree with Cobalt on the carb. Use the one you know is good at least to start.
I would love to improve the gears immediately but unfortunately that's the most expensive part. The 3500 stall I can get for about $150. I think I want to use a vac sec 750 holley for ease of driving, I don't want to have to drive the truck like it's a manual all the time, a good used one can be had for $100 or so, but I'll get the motor going with the eddie for now. The gears gears and everything that go's with changing them will run me almost as much as I paid for the motor. I'm on a fairly limited budget right now but I need to get this thing going.
