before you go too far check the throttle shaft play in the carb, edelbrocks are notorious for wearing there and it is a PITA to fix.

When I did them I would also take a fairly thin and fine cartridge roll and smooth over the casting lie as well, there seems to be a lot of them in an Edelbrock carb, it may or may not do much but I felt it helped slightly with metering signal. You can also fill in some areas with epoxy and smooth them over to get a more contoured path- all little things that can help but don't HAVE to be done.

Be sure to thuroughly clean the air passages on the carb, those have always been the problem areas for me.
