just got a used 750, need jet size

I just got a good used Holley strip dominator manifold and a 750 dbl pumper
gonna drop it on my 406 and let the tunnel and 2 450s take a break, eat'n me outta house and home.
the eng. is a 13:8:1 406/ 268/278@.50 .630 lift, the 450s finally settled on 64 jets vs. 582's< stock, and left the plate alone ( 134R ) had great plug color, but needed a 3.5 valve only had 10 inches at 1100RPM, I had 6.5 to start with...taking the formular: drop 2.0 off ur idle vac#..ran like a pos...kept playing 5.5/4.5/ 3.5 nice an crisp!
the 750 now has 70F and 79R and a 6.5 pv, now that its a single carb vs 2 450s how do select a PV thats close, drop in a 3.5 again or will the -2.0 of the idle vac rule now apply once more
any of U racers have a eng combo like mine? what jets R U using, I have jet-hot coated headers and I dont want to trash'em on a lean set-up, it dont take long, faster then U can get the plug to color
BTW its in a flat bottom Drag Boat, 1 gear only, but pulls like a train
thanks all, peace, Sunman

Just how do you use that boat? You drag or just putt around?
If you get rid of the power valve, you ain't got anything to lean it out at part throttle and such.
Ran a 750 holley DP plugged and jetted 80 square, ran it on a 355 ci chevy roller motor .630 lift, took it off and slapped it on a 447 CI stroker 700+ lift, didn't touch it and it ran fine.
The more things you got in the system that can screw up, the more trouble you got. My motto is "Keep it simple!"

I cruse around 30mph, and when the lake lice come out I like to wack it 80-90mph..if the waters there, but like I said the Tunnel and 13.8:1 is killing my wallet, thats why I wanna switch to a 750 and single plane.

I dont know about running 80 square$$$$$$$$
isnt the 4779 like 75F 76R????

F-Byrd I agree on the 3.5, the prop loads the eng. at idle and the vac drops to 5-6in. w/a 4.5 I still had to blip/feather the throttle a little to keep the eng from loading up, the 3.5 give me a little seperation, was fine w/a 9% gear and a 10.75 wheel & 4.5 PV went to a 15% gear same prop and had to go 3.5
where? else can U go 100mph 1/2 naked? DragBoats
