tm454 BROTHER! My 74 Dodge PU does the same thing, it was fine till I put on the new carb. Now it stumble, belches and farts till it has run about 8-10 min then seems to run OK. I'm still playing with the choke settings to see if I can make it better. My gas milage never was very good but boy will she haul ***.

colaus Keep jetting the primary's down until you stumble off idle, then jet a couple of sizes richer, that should put you in the ball park...

4 Jaw Chuck Adjust your jetting to compensate, the mileage you have to live with.

johnnymopar only thing i can think of is to check what kind of thermostat you have, or see if there is a heat shield on your intake?

Cold weather blues

I have a BB 454 in a 82 Chevy truck. When ever its starts getting cold out it stars running rough. I know GM's are natorious for being cold blooded, but this is a little more. After about 10 minute warm up and the choke is all the way open, i still have about a 2 MPG drop in the colder climate. I am running a Comp Cam, 224/224, with a Edelbrock performer set up and i opened the carb a little with the Performer RMP needle set. any suggestions on how i can keep this tuned right when the weather changes.
