These springs work against vacuum to transition the rods from cruise to power. In cruise mode vacuum pulls the rods down against the springs and the carb runs relatively lean. When vacuum drops during acceleration the springs push the rods up into power mode. If the spring pressure vs. vacuum is off, the transition to power mode is too slow. Edelbrock sells a set of springs that are rated in 3" to 8" of vacuum. A higher rated spring transitions to power mode sooner, which can help part-throttle bog.

Its full throttle launches from a dead stop. If I get up on the converter and ease into it there is no problem.

Well I think I figured out why my car was stalling on the corners. The passenger side metering rod got bent and wasn't even inserted into the hole in the base of the carb. I haven't had a chance to take it out on a cruise since I fixed it but im hoping that fixed the cornering issue.

I readjusted the float level and the hesitation still continues. I am gonna get a tune up kit and try swapping out the step-up springs to something that will transition sooner.
