    In case anyone cares, I fixed my horrible idle by replacing the carb. It was that simple... yet expensive.

    QUESTION: I'm not going to keep the carb I temporarily installed, so which carb should I finally go with? People here praise the Edlebrock 1901, but man, they're exepensive. I HAD good luck on the trails with the 1405, which is about half the price of the 1901. But does anyone have any other rec's?

    Cool that you found the problem. As for a recommendation on what kind of carburetor, when I need a new carburetor, I go to the J-yards and find a Quadrajet off of whatever make it is I'm looking for one (in this case, a Chevy). Then I clean and build it, rejetting it so it will run with the camming, displacement, and other parameters of the engine involved.
