Question edelbrock carbs

I'm having problems with my edelbrock performer carb. I have it on a chevy 350, it has electric choke. The problem is that only 2 of the barrels are opening and the secondary ones never open up. Any help appreciated, thanks.

Try www.edelbrock.com/automotive/index.html This website has breakdowns, FAQs, and setup info for Performer carbs. I think that you will find anything that you need here. My Performer carb has a mechanical linkage that opens the secondaries with a flapper that opens when the vacuum draws it open. Did you maybe have the top off of the carb to adjust the floats and forget to put a rod back on? Do you have your throttle set up to pull 100%? There are different holes and there is usually an adjustment on the throttle linkage that would cause the problem. I would disconnect the throttle and see if you can manually open it 100%
