Rebuilt 327 w/Edelbrock carb revs WAY too high
This is my first post and I'm hoping you all can help- I just finished rebuilding a 275HP 327 for my '66 Chevelle, and am trying desperately to get her back on the road. On the rebuilt motor I am running a stock intake manifold, HEI, and an Edelbrock 1406 600-CFM carb (brand new, just bought yesterday)w/electric choke.
I am new to working with carbs and timing, but thought I had everything set up correctly. Problem is, when starting the new engine, it starts but immediately goes to very high RPM's and all I can do is shut it off. I made no adjustments to the carb out of the box, simply put it on the car and tried it out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, but PLEASE try to give suggestions in a format I can follow! Every person who has replied so far has given me instructions like I'm a 50 year old mechanic, which isn't the case 8^]
Thanks in advance,
