Thanks, was that a "feedback" carb or just stand alone?
truck ran great but I'm ambivalent due to the Holley, some minor rust,
and the fact that it had an OD trans that didn't seem to shift right
(delayed 1-2 upshift) making me think that there might be issues down
the road due to it having been run with a misadjusted throttle pressure
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
No feedback carb. Some back then did have an electrically
controlled dual volume accelerator pump where the electrical
connection to the carb looked exactly like the mixture control
solenoid connection found on the passenger cars w/ feedback carb
of that era. Food for confusion, that.
If it's a 305, it will have ESC, (electronic spark control) which
is a knock sensor and mini processor to retard the spark timing
if knock is detected. Easy to by-pass and 100% legal to do so
according to the numerous TSBs published.
350s were pretty straight forward, HEI with no gimmicks, a few
Don't blame ya...
Could just be that the detent cable is one notch too tight.
