Holley carb and engine assistance
Hello folks, been awhile since i've been on. Been having an issue getting my 79 CJ5 with 258 , 4.0 Head swap to run right. I added an Offy 4 barrel intake as well as put on a Holley 470 TA carb along with a 4 barrel carb spacer to get it properly mounted as the linkages would allow for a flush mount. It has the 57 jets in there right now and the power valve was replaced to the correct pv as I was drawing 22 pounds of vacuum. My issues are the carb seems to always run rich and the exhaust has a strong fuel smell, so much it gets into my clothes when I drive it. I've opened the gap up on some fresh spark plugs last weekend to .045. I have also done the Team Rush upgrade in the past.
I'm wondering if the carb is just to much carb and I should have gone with a 390cfm. One thing I did do with the carb was add the non adjustable fuel bowls to it that way I wouldn't have to fiddle with it. Seems though i'm fiddling with it way to much!!!!
Any suggestions will greatly be appreciated.
