OK, at WOT I have the secondaries open (sounds great) but the truck accelerates slower than I feel it should. I would think that it should take off when it down shifts and the secondaries open, but it accelerates at a slow rate. I add some tranny fluid because it was low and it did help, but not too much. Any suggestions?

The truck is a 79 chevy 1/2 ton with a 350ci and a th350 (4wd, but have it in 2wd) I also have a B&M shift kit in it with the heavy duty setup.

Thanks again.

it is a quadrajet. The secondaries sound like they are opening. can I tell just by looking in to see if they are getting fuel while the engine is off? The carb was rebuilt about a year ago.
