Pro Comp metering blocks

I just ordered a quick fuel rebuild kit and some adjustable ProComp metering blocks for my Holley 390. I'm just looking to see if anyone has anything to say about these. I'll post pics and results to this thread after I get the carb rebuilt and installed.

At $25 for a pair of blocks I'm not expecting much, but its something that I can work on without worrying about messing up.

i would take & melt them down & pour the melted metering blocks into the exhaust crossover holes in your 291 heads. that way you could get some use out of them.

say it with me people, PROCOMP SUCKS!

everything i have bought from them has been sold or sent back because of just being knock off junk.

I know a lot of people that have good results with them. They have had a spotty past but I think they're coming around. I may be wrong though. I have 25 bucks hopin the parts are good, not too much of a risk.

i wasn't trying to sound like a ***** if i did. the first part was meant as a joke.

i bought a set of procomp big block mopar heads, rockers, valves, valve covers, & valley plate about 4-5 months ago. the only thing worth keeping was the heads. the heads checked out great, but the rocker adjusting bolts was drilled at an angle so that the adjusting nuts would touch on one side & have a .025" gap under the other side after they was ran down on the rocker. .025" is massave on something that simple that should have rested flat all around. the valley plate holes didn't line up with the holes in the heads, the valve cover holes didn't line up with the holes in the heads. the valves was cheap low performance valves.

now as far as what everything looked like, it all looked very good, until i got checking basic stuff.

i even told the guy over sales at procomp, if i liked what i got i would be sure & praise the hell out of them, i also told him if i didn't like the parts people would hear that too. i guess it didn't matter.

great logic, buy something THEN look for some reviews.

After my ProComp Distributor only lasting ONE fire-up of my engine, wouldn't touch there **** with a 100FT pole.
