What is the carb or car doing? Does the engine stall, run rich, bog. Let us know what it is doing so we can give you some reasonable feedback. The (new) carb should run right out of the box. Of course it should need a little fine tuning. The carb may be a bit small for your combination. I would think a 650 would be a better fit. Edelbrock carb run well and are easy to work on. However. most folks that know how to tune a carb are more familiar with holley style carbs. Usually people using an Edelbrock carb put it on adjsut the idle mixture and never touch it again. They are good reliable street carbs.
