db flyer PS. The adapter now fits the large openings on manifold and cover the small holes

db flyer yes, I reworked the adapter to match manifold, and there does not appear to be any vacuum leaks.
Here is the Ebay item # of tbi kit 271285477375 Thanks

64SS327 Did you do anything else with the tbi adaptor? If you didn't I would imagine that might have something to do with how it's running. It would also help you you mentioned what kit you bought.

detonating tbi ?

I purchased a tbi conversion on the net for my 56 chev. 283 ci. stock cam eng.
The ecu is supposed to be from a 305/350 ci. However I have had a problems for a week. The kit came with a new dist. but mostly used parts such as HARNESS, coil, and most sensors except 02 sensor. The eng. started up, but it
sounded like it was detonating. Which I`m sure it is. I could not time it and make any difference with detonating. after I tried a few more times with timing adjustment, it then would not fire at all. Called co. and they said the dist module was bad, got a new one, made no diff. then they sent another dist. and it started up ok but detonation was still there. This 283 ci eng. was rebuilt 1500 miles ago and has run great until this conversion. Does anyone know for sure if the chip in the ecu could cause a problem like detonation?
I know that the 283 is not an eng. that most guys convert to tbi, but it should work like a 305 eng. ? Help please.
