    I have a real problem with the carburetor on my k5; the thing run super rich and always did. I swapped old 305 for a 350, years ago and left all the old emissions equipment off. The k5 has a Holly 650 on it now and like I said it run real rich. I have tried numerous times to adjust it but no luck. I was thinking of just buying a new Q-jet and trying my luck there. Does any one here have any suggestions or any advice on the type setup I should go with?
    Thanks
