Edelbrock offroad kit?

I came across one on the internet. Says it will work with all performer carbs. I have the 1406 on my cj. Whats the purpose of this said "kit"? Its inexpensive, just wondering what the point of it is? Thanks!

It's a spring loaded needle seat/valve. It keeps it from bouncing open/shut off-road. It doesn't do much, but helps a little.....and that carb needs a lot of help to work off-road.

I have installed a couple of them, you just remove the needle and seat, replace the needle with the ones supplied (they have a hole drilled in them to accomodate a spring) and then re adjust your float. It makes an amazing difference, I have some pics of an install, but I will have to get them from the computer at home.

Yeah, thats what I have heard. I was looking at the holley truck avenger, but a friend had the 1406 with about an hour run time on it that was 3 months old for $100, to hard to pass up.

So you are saying it would be worth the $20? sounds good to me!

I found the pics, I am a huge Eddlebrock fan and I can tell you from experience that when you dial in it, it works one step under TBI. I am running this kit on both of my chevy 350s and I really like the results.
