I am running a 4brl Holley avenger 670cfm. Great power and pickup, ****ty mpg. Edelbrock makes several that will work. Try summitracing.com or 4wd.com but carry carbs for the 304, just a matter of figureing out what you want out of a carb.

I've got the Edelbrock Performer series carb 600 cfm. Got mine from Summit online, reconditioned for $197. Sits on an Edelbrock performer intake. I'm very happy with it.

for a stock 304 i would not go over a 6oo holly or elde card you can always get an adapter for 2 bbl to 4 bbl to see if you like it then go with a manfold then i would go with an airgap intake

Edelbrock has a 500cfm carb. Should be good for stock 304. I have headers, big duals, aftermarket intake, otherwise fairly stock internally. 600 cfm does well on this combo.

My '73 CJ5 has a 4bbl Holley 4160 600cfm carburetor sitting on an Edelbrock intake manifold. I just rebuilt the carb last week, finding a small gasket missing from the vacuum diaphragm. Runs much better. I kept stalling at stops or after applying the brakes rather robustly.

My understanding is that an Edlebrock or Holley 600cfm carb is a good match for an AMC 304 V8.
