Sir,i guess my Quadrajet has 68 primaries,i think the 65 jets is good for Chevy 350!
. The '76 350's have an actual compression ratio way down around 7.6:1 and tend to get about 9 MPG city and 13 MPG hiway no matter what carb.'s you run... some better pistons and better engine quench distance can bump that up to like 17 city and 23 hiway...

. A good Q-Jet carb. will get better MPG than any of the others...

right
you first install the carb on your engine and run engine to 50km then check your spark plug : if light your jetting is small if dark your jetting is high and if light with brown your jetting is correct .
before mounting carb in your engine do not change any things .
Certainly for tuning and testing the carb use vacuum geage not your ears !!!

eric32 I have that exact 80457 sa holley sitting on my 350 as we speak. That is the aluminum version and its the same as the old 1850s and 80457s model numbers but they are zinc but all else being the same are the same carb just different material and a manual choke or a electric choke as well. There nice carbs for mild builds.

OK that is a newer style 600 cfm Holley.

Either carb would be fine for your situation. It really comes down to a matter of personal preference. I like Holley's but many people prefer and have good results with Edelbrock.

You may want to take a look at which one would be easier to install based on your current fuel line and throttle cable arrangements to help you decide.

As far as what jets are good for mileage a lot depends on your engine combo along with what type of transmission and rear gearing etc. On my holley I run 66 primary jets for what gives me good mileage but that is one step richer then stock. Usually if the carb is tuned right for your engine combo usually you might go no more then 4 sizes bigger or smaller then what holley has it at stock settings. Basically you have to see what your engine wants.
X2, often on milder builds where mileage is a concern, I jet down to 59 or 60 and use the two step power valve. Makes the Holley get mileage almost like a Q-Jet on a 350 of 300 to 350 horses.
