    Waht carb are you running? Maybe the floats are set low. How much gas did you have in the tank?

    Try getting the offroad kit for the carburator. If they dont do underhood emision inspections where you live I wouldnt worry about the non-emission thing.

    definatly go with the offroad kit. My edelbrock would stall out at minimal angles. I now have a quadrajet and have had no real problems yet.

    an over dose is to high I would suppose ......? No for real i too run an E-brock and the spring loaded seats are a must for any angles you also change the float level a little as per Edelbrock's suggestions , Good luck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
