Well I inserted a 1 inch adapter plate that is entirely open in the middle, since my edelbrock manifold is open as well.
Turned down both screws in the front and opened them up 2.25 turns.
Seems to run better but i'm having issues hitting the throttle under load, from a dead stop. Seems to sputter a bit.
I'm going to try and retard the timing and see if that helps out (the motor was almost fully warm when I did this)
Opinions are appreciated.
I think after I do a full tune up I should be able to pass emissions, the air and fuel mixture screws were almost 4 turns out each
Also shimmed up my starter since it was tearing out teeth on my flywheel. Flywheel looks like a shark went around and bit the edges in multiple spots. So I went and bought 1/4 inch worth of shims, inserted them all and now it purrs like a kitten, and starts every time haha....
