I am running an Edelbrock 1406 on my 64 429 with the stock mechanical fuel pump with no problem regarding fuel pressure
If using the stock backerlight blk spacer you need to block off one of the two PVC inlets to the carb as you now have two ( one on top of the other )
You will now have two places to connect your vacuum advance
The best one to use is the one on the drivers side of the carb closing off the other
That will improve your timing advance curve over the stock set up to give you more power thru the RPM range which is another benefit of using the Edelbrock carbs over a stock rebuilt carb ( the performance people )

I assume you removed the intake and blocked off the correct heat passages for the old chock so you can now use the new electric choke

I did have to rejet my carb on my 64 429 as the plugs were burning a bit lean to correct that
The Techs at Edelbrock will tell you what to change for just Asking

A new fresh carb working correctly is a wonderful thing to have on any car restoration

Enjoy


If you have a 63 with the hydromatic trans You will need to make a braket so the trans shifts correctly
If you have the turbo 400 trans you will be fine

Kraig, A regulator is not needed for the Edelbrock 1406 unless you are perhaps using an electric pump that pushes the psi above spec. The Edelbrock Tuning Guide on page 9 recommends a minimum of 4-5 psi, and a maximum of 6.5 psi on Page 3 of the installation guide.  Your shop manual on page shows fuel pump it idle at 5 1/4 to 6 1/2psi. These carbs are built to work within most stock fuel pump parameters.

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
