    Has anyone here used the Edelbrock 7094 dual quad linkage? I'm trying to figure out the range of adjustment and am getting conflicting information. I have a factory dual quad '57, but the carbs are simultaneously non-original and junk, so I'm swapping them out with Edelbrock AVS2 carbs with...

    My 57 with a Rochester 2 jet, inline filter, and mechanical fuel pump loses its prime in 24 hours. I have to dump gas in the carb to get it running. Once it's running it runs like A champ. After shutdown, 24 hours later the inline filter is dry, and it won't start without a gas dump in the carb...

    Right side exhaust header has a non threaded hole on the top. I've read these are used for choke controls on the carb. Do I need to plug it as the engine seems to run fine without it or add a choke to the carb (Rochester 4Jet)? the exhaust still has the heat spring valve attached. The engine...
