New Carb or???

Post by Capt. B on Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:18 am

'62 Special 215, the I looked at a straight up overhaul but frankly the Rochester is pretty worn out. Are there any Holley's or Edelbrocks that would work?

These motors don't need big CFMs so I thought I'd ask if anyone was running a bolt on?

Edelbrock 1403 ( 500 cfm - e choke ) or 1404 ( 500 cfm manual choke ) are the consensus go to's if you want to move on from the 4GC.

I've got a 1403 on my car it is pretty much a bolt on. Seemed to add a lil pep over the 4GC as well. Might run a tad rich out of the box but E-brocks are very easy to make jet/metering rod changes and tune.

Other option ( if $$ allows ) would be to go with one of the packaged EFI units out there ( MSD, EZ EFI, FITECH ) but obviously this option will cost more and require more work as well.
