    Edelbrock carb Question

    Hello,
    I have a 1967 Cadillac Hearse w/ 429 that I would like to replace the carb. The old carb could be rebuilt, but I would like to get the engine running the best I can, and at the same time dress up the engine a bit. question is:

    Would this be an easy swap, and would there be much tunning. I have never replaced or adjusted a carb before, but hey, I taught myself how to replace the Starter, water pump, radiator, fan, plugs and wires, tranny lines, fuel filter. (she sat for a long time) So I am not afraid.

    I was thinking about the Elelbrock #350-1405

    Any Help would be great.


    Thanks
    Steve

    For a better idea get in touch with JET Performance in California. They rebuild Q-Jets for anything, in any stage of tune. Not too expensive either.

    I use them for several tunes on my Olds 455 boat engine rebuilds. Happy Camper.

    www.jetchip.com and get to the carburetor tab in the home page lower left.

    Jet Performance is a respected place, and can get the Q-jet made to work great for you.

    Hi, I bought my '73 472 cui with a 1407, 750 cfm Edelbrock / Performer Bridge installed.
    First I thought that this wasn't my thing, but I must say it starts up right away even after longer sitting in winter, runs perfect and gives me 15,8 mpg...

    And I have to mention the manual choke that goes with it. This way, I can handle the starting and warm-up by myself and I'm pretty happy with that. It takes max. one minute to push the choke all the way in and the engine snorres like a cat...

    Not original, I know. But the divorced choke gives probs sometimes and the manual choke doesn't.
