Cool! holley jets too? I love this carburetor but its a tad too much fuel for a stock 302 i was hoping to maybe jet down a hair so the fuel/air burns a little cleaner.I know 600cfm is considered 'small' but my autolites were only 450cfm and 480cfm 4bbl carbs..and on stock 289/302 i was getting 21-23mpg..i dont dare think i can get it with this carb.But i would like to lean it a bit

HAWT DAWG! i love this carburetor! the power valve was broken,But i went and picked up a Holley 6.5,pulled the carburetor screwed in the new valve,Bolted everything again and i just got back from a ride and adjusting the carb.I think the power valve might have been broken for awhile and maybe it just got worse the last several days.Because the truck runs much smoother and throttle response is quick and sharp.the rich smell and eyes stinging are gone

DONE! i didnt have a bad power valve (but i put a holley 65 in it anyways) and i didnt have a bad accelerator pump (my 2nd guess) i took the carb apart today cleaned it with carb/choke cleaner and you were right,The check ball had some crud around it,And i found some filings in both bowls.Im guessing its from when the carb was assembled at the factory (yes,i know i should have checked before i installed it) I also found a vacumn leak on one the rubber caps i used on the intake.I put it all back together with a new fuel filter.warmed the truck up then began tuning it.The nostril stinging smell of raw fuel is gone,the sputter from a vacumn leak is gone.the electric choke works yeah thats a '1st' for me,if i ever had a carb with an electric choke i usually broke it off and modify for a manual choke.Some final checks and small adjustments and then i will be done.this carb has been minimal headaches..the flooding issue was my own fault.i have been driving the truck because i needed it badly...i never wired the electric choke to run as designed i just twisted the round thingy til the carb was all the way open so it would run til i could wire it up..bad idea.but its alright now
