Holly carb

Hi guys and girls

i have cleaned it out but now can't get it to run very well, it's a pig to start seems like it's running rich runs fast and and if you slow the idel down stalls when you put it in gear
iv also fitted a high pressure pump and it kept flooding so i put an in line regulator hope some one can help as im at a loss as to what to do next

cheers Bobby

1. Carefully unbolt carburetor.
2. Remove applicable linkage.
3. Remove carburetor from intake.
4. Drop in trash.
5. Buy an Edelbrock.

Not to be a smart ***, but it sounds like there may still be some dirt inside. I would disassemble again and vigorously blow out the passages.
