Great performance

May 11, 2015
I put this carb. On my 1924 ford coupe which had a carb issue that I had been dealing with for several months. I had a problem with starting my hot rod . But the first time I turned the starter over it fired up! It was awesome I had been chasing issues with my old carb and instantly corrected it with my edelbrock carb. I have put lots of miles on my 34 since and I'm completely sold on the edelbrock which is the first one I have ever bought. I would recommend these carbs to anyone wanting consistent performance and get this. No off idle stumble out of the box. Usualy it requires some tuning skills to eliminate off idle stumble. None with this product. Thank you speedway
Yes, I recommend this product.

Yes a 1404 Edelbrock should run fine on a stock 1972 350 engine. If it is a stock intake manifold you will need an adapter plate part number 135-1932

Your 292 intake could have had more than one bolt pattern for the four barrel. Neither is correct for the Edelbrock or Holley carburetors. Adapter number 1351935 has the following mount dimensions for the manifold: (1): 3.750" x 3.875" (2): 4.250" x 5.625" (3): 5.125" x 5.6 If it is neither of these 1351935B for a Carter WCFB it has pattern of : 4.25" x 5.60", Outside: 5.125" x 5.60" The last pattern of 5.125" x 5.60" on both adapters will fit this carburetor.

Hi! - I want to get the most fuel-economic sollution for my 255 flathead V8. Will this be right size carb for my Mercury 255 flathead V8? And what else do I need - What type of intake do you recomend. Fuel lines, gaskets, mounting bolts(?) etc.? Of course I want a smooth and easy to install carb. - Do you have any other carb suggestions? Thank you!

For a carburetor for your 255 flathead the 500 cfm will likely be too much unless running an unusually high rpm. Normally our flathead customers run the 390 cfm Holley number 4258007 with great results. This carb is equipped with a 5/16” barb inlet fitting and can accept standard 5/16” fuel line or our Speedway see thru red number 91011449, carburetor stud kit number 135-60, gasket 550-55, intake gasket number 3442853, and for the intake you need to match it to your engine year and we offer the Edelbrock, Offenhauser, and our elevated carb intake number 910-15962.

If you have a 1406 Edelbrock 600 cfm and need to jet it down for a smaller displacement engine we offer a metering rod and jet kit number 3251487. When down sizing jets the metering rods also need to be changed if going in any large increments. Edelbrock has an excellent tech line that will mate the carb jets and metering rods to your cubic inch, altitude, and cam for proper application. That number is 800-416-8628.

Speedway Part number 3251404. The Edelbrock carburetors do have different fuel and vacuum ports than a Holley carb. They are not a direct swap, but relatively easy as long as your ok with potentially changing the fuel and vacuum lines. The throttle linkage may also need to be modified to complete the install.

The Edelbrock 3251404 500 cfm would work for the cross ram manifold and is the same that is used on the dual quad or tunnel ram kits. Head work and cam modifications for best performance and naturally the correct jetting and metering rods for your altitude.

I have a Chevy 383. Currently running 1407 Edelbrock carb. I am running so rich cant stand in garage after 5 min. I am not sure the specs on motor. I have tried different jets and what not with no luck. After some research I am thinking I have to big of a carb. I have done the carb calculator thing. I did 5000 rpms cause I have yet to get that high. 383 x 5000 x 0.85 divided by 3456 = 470. So with that done I been looking at a 500cfm or a 600cfm carb. What's all your thoughts? Will a smaller carb make a big difference? thanks

The first thing you should do is check your idle mixture screw adjustment. They should be somewhere around 1 to 1.5 turns out from the fully seated position. Once you get to that base line adjustment then you can turn them evenly in or out to achieve the highest RPM at idle that is possible. Then reset your idle speed and repeat the idle mixture screw adjustment until you again achieve the fastest idle possible. Once the idle mixture screws are set correctly I would bet that your issues will be much better if not gone. If you still have idle issues there is probably something wrong with the carburetor. A smaller carburetor will not solve an issue at idle. The only way it would solve your issue is if your current carburetor has a problem. I would personally suggest no less than 600 CFM for a 383 engine. For general driving and mild performance a 600 or 650 CFM would be good. For maximum performance the 750 CFM that you have would be the best choice.
