After you get the timing set to spec, then you get to play with the carb. Yes, the 1406 is set up a bit leaner for mileage purposes but that's 'as shipped'. You will need a copy of the Edelbrock Performer carb owners manual and you will need to spend some time reading it as it can be confusing the first couple passes through. You will then need at least a 1487 calibration kit, but the 1479 kit has a better selection of choices (Carburetor Calibration Kits -

Owner's manual for the 1404 through the series of carbs: (it loads slowly)

This is all there is to them - and one of my 1405's with the electric choke add-on
