Edelbrock Carb

When you bought the Edelbrock Carb it should have come with a tuning guide,Edelbrocks' website is loaded with lots of info on how to tune them.The Edelbrock and Carter AFB carbs are probably the easiest to work on ever made,a shop that can't work on something that simple probably should close up and go home. #1 In shipping these carbs will more than likely have had the floats knocked out of adjustment from being bounced around(very common) so re-adjust the floats #2 put a fuel pressure regulator on and set it for 4 1/2 psi(it's not uncommon for stock pumps to produce pressures in excess of that causing a rich condition and flooding.
