Hey guys, I am looking for info on what metering rods and metering jets to replace on my Edelbrock 1406, running pretty rough after warmed up until the RPM'S increase to clean out the ports. Running at 5,280 altitude here in Denver & the car came from Chicago. So in the past high altitude would mean to change the Metering Rods & Metering Jets. Q. is for this carb and high altitude what would you guys recommend? Thanks for the info here.

Great suggestion. I called there several times while trying to set up the carbs. on my blower. They were always very helpful and patient. Can't go wrong with contacting them.

Check out the 1406 calibration chart here:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...=aapZJcdYxALG1MLM5Ucf8Q&bvm=bv.47883778,d.eWU

I'd start off by reading Section 2: Tuning Procedure on Page 5. Then check out the 1406 calibration chart on Page 12. I'd say Calibration #7 is a good place to start.

I used to live at 9600 feet and drove down as low as 5000, and had my engine running very well at #7, or maybe even #10, #11, or #12. That was back in 94-97, so I don't remember for sure.
