Holly carbs have served me well on several different vehicles over the past 15 years.
unless there's a lot of slop and wear in the shafts running through the body, i'd reccommend just getting a rebuild kit for the carb and giving it a good cleaning with a tear-down & rebuild...you should be able to do it in an afternoon and would only cost you about $40 or so for the kit.
if there's no major damage or warpage to the body, i'd say go for it.

600 would be plenty. I put a 670 on my 350 with cam and intake and it was alittle to much for the stock heads.
