    I don't no crap about manuals for the most part but it sounds like your bog could be in the timing or secondaries engaging to early or something. Carbs and manuals aren't areas that I am really knowledgable but at least I bumped your thread. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Sounds like your clutch is out of adjustment and not disengaging. Tightening it up (adjusting free play) is most likely your best bet to fix the problem.

    Yeah, i agree. It sounds like the clutch is disengaging completly and not allowing you to shift.
    What 4bbl carb did you go with? was it new or used?
