Hi guys, I need a little advise as to which way to go about
this; I have a 454 9.5/1comp, holley 800dp marine 9022 carb,
Edelbrock Victor Jr (rect), Crane ZHR-288 cam(226/234 @.050),
a little over 15in of Vacuum at Idle(900rpm). I'm having trouble
getting the idle mixture correct. The primary's are 1 1/2 open from
seated & the secondary's are 1/2 from seated. If I turn one side of
the idle mixture screw all the way in, nothing happens. If I leave it
and go to the other side I can finally get the motor to start to die
w/ 1/2-1 turn in (set at 1 1/2 out). I'm trying to keep from drilling holes
in the primary plates. Should I maybe open the secondary plate a little
and close the primary respectfully to lessen the exposure of the transfer
slot? I'm just learning these holley's from having Edelbrocks.......
Thanks for any input in advance!!
