stinky exaust

hey guys, i have 4 cars , and one really stinks when its idling in the driveway. you can , notice the differance . i thought maybe the choke was stuck, but it was not. your eyes will burn if you are within 10 feet. the motor was recently rebuilt to be a 383 stroker with a edelbrock top end and a brand new carb. edelbrock info says you should not have to adjust carb, but something is not right. any comments , thanks , allanb

I really don't buy into the ready-out-of-the-box thing. Try adjusting your idle adjustment screws, and make sure the throttle plates aren't open so far at idle it exposes to much of the transfer slots, pulling fuel over from the main circuit. Have you checked float level?

My edelbrock carbs come with instructions for intial base line tuning. Then procedure to tune from there.

If you purchased a carb from a specialty shop they might have set it close.
