Post Edelbrock Carb.

I seem to have a half second delay when I hit the gas hard in my 350. I was told it was the carb acting up. I have an edelbrock 600cfm. It seems to be okay when I nail it from a dead stop once the car is warm. I adjusted the float pump to give a little more squirt when I hit the gas, but didn't really help. Any Ideas? I'm really thinking about getting a new carb if I can't fix this one. What's the best ones out there for a daily driver? Thanks for the help.

Sounds like you have a slight bog. That can usually be eliminated with a rod change.

If you don't still have the owners manual, check the Edelbrock site for instructions on rod changes and tuning.

Good luck.

Try changing springs for the power piston too. Clean the idle emulsion tubes with carb cleaner first. Is it about time for a rebuild?

The carburetor is brand new with only about 500 miles on it. I think I still have the owner's manual somewhere, I'll have to look for it. Thanks guys.
