my 1972 Ford Galxie 500 with a 400m

My name is David and I have a 1972 Ford Galaxie 500 with a 6.6L. I got it for a steal at $1200 and the interior is amazing. A buddy and I did some work and put an edelbrock intake on it with a holley 600cfm 4 barrell. Mallory distributor/coil with 8mm plug wires. Running into troubles which I will gladly explain in the forums. Thanks for reading!

400m

well the thing is we didnt get a chance to put a gauge in it. i DONT know why I put it off. Im paying the price because of it for sure. It just has the idiot light in it. It was flickering and I just assumed it was from low idle cause when i gave it gas it stopped flickering.
