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 Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
