AMC 360 / Edelbrock Carb and Intake Questions
I have a 1978 CJ7 with an AMC 360 engine, Edelbrock Performer 600 CFM carb (part# 1406), Edelbrock Performer AMC intake, T150/Dana 20, stock ignition Module with an e-core coil and a distributor with a larger cap setup (I suppose this is similar to the team rush upgrade, but not sure if it was done 100% correct). By the sound of the engine at idle I believe that there is an aftermarket cam installed. I have no idea what it is.
I have had the Jeep for about 2 months and after reading within this forum for countless hours have some questions.
1. Is this the correct size carb for this engine?
2. What gains could I expect by installing a CDI ignition?
3. Will installing the Edelbrock "heat shield" gasket improve warm starts?
4. Is the stock spring/metering rod setup adequate or should I attempt to tinker?
Thanks to all who advise?
