    does anyone know if there is a kit out there to put baffles in an edelbrock? or is the only solution to my incline problems going to be either a q-jet or FI?

    if you'd like to eliminate the problems you're having with your AFB carb off camber, install it in one of these...

    A 7* marine wedge will work just fine.

    not sure exactly what problem your having but if the fuel is coming back up thru the float vent when traversing steep inclines you can take a length of vacuum hose and connect the 2 float vents together, then drill a couple holes in the line close to the threaded stud to allow the pressure to equalize in both float chambers.

    We used the wedge in Hawaii with great success. Any marine shop will have them. They're used to keep the carb level when the boat is on plane/ step.That and I think I remember we epoxied the vents. I think. Thou the Holley rubber tube might work also.
