Id start by checking for vacuum leaks and verifying the timing curve

Id start by dropping or raising the fuel pressure to 5.5 lbs and verifying your getting a minimum of a 1/2 gallon a minute unrestricted flow

Id start at all four jets #70

Id install a NEW power valve and ID buy several,if your carb uses them, so I could play/exchange/test

heres a neat little option for the HOLLEY carbs, its not really In expensive but it does allow you to effectively change the fuel flow rates far faster than you could changing JETS, its basically a needle & seat valve that adjusts like the float levels do on a Holley carb, it comes with detailed instructions , and if you use a fuel ratio meter or an IR temp gun and read spark plugs it will allow you to adjust the fuel air ratio far faster and easier than jet changes will


start here, theres no sense in guessing

heres where
a infrared non-contact thermometer helps diagnose mixture problems very quickly, but youll need one that reads into the 1400F range for the headers for quick diagnoses

temperature range from -58 to 1832°F

I use this one :grin: (above) and youll need to learn how to read plugs (this may help)
