    Just got my first 84 Blazer... Hit the dirt a few time this week and she is boggin too much at not the worst of angles... right now she has a edelbrock 650 and I have a new Carter AFB 770(gift from friend)... I have heard the Quadrajet is the best, but untill i get some extra cash, I gotta deal... My question is what carb of the two I have would be the best... would different jetting help and if so what would it be? Any ideas would help... thanks

    Stick with the 650 if the engine is somewhat stock and get an Off-Road needle and jet kit from Edelbrock. That will help you until you get a Quadratoilet!

    Edelbrock doesn't make a 650, but it's probably a 600 which is good for your application.

    AFB is the same design of carb but if it's really 770 CFM avoid that like the plague!
