    All right. Spent the weekend wheeling up in Uwharrie. I tended to be the one who held everyone up due to carb problems. I am running an Edelbrock 1406 with the offroad kit installed in it. Now every I would hit a good size obstacle I would stall out due to the carb. I am thinking Fuel Injection but honestly I don't have the money for that so I am considering going back to a Q-Jet carb. What do you guys think. It has been a few years since I run a Q Jet and have kind of forgoten what they are like offroad.

    The Edelbrock handled fine when it was bumpy, only screwed up when I hit a incline and it would stall out /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    The one I ran for 2 months I borrowed from a friend, it was a 1405 I think, ran like that. I firmly believe speed shop carbs don't work good off road. I rebuilt my original Q-jet and all was fine. Replaced that one with a new one ( original needs bushed ) and still have no problems. If you can't afford injection, a Q-Jet is perfect. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Due you know what your fuel pressure is and have you put a vent extension tube on? Since the carb is new, you might as well try to make it work.
