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.
