I have a couple issues with my 83 Blazer. One, the kickdown cable sucks. I took the kickdown cable out because it wasn't hooked up to the carb. I put one on from a 79 Blazer because it was supposed to fit for my setup. The end that goes into the tranny is identical to the one that I took out, but now it leaks horribly. I was going to just pack a bunch of silcon around it to fix the leak, but I have been told that's not a good idea. Why is that not a good idea? Is there some reason I should not do that? The other question is about my carb. Right now I have a holley carb on an Edelbrock intake. I'm sure you've all heard this one a million times, but here goes again... Every time I get myself into a badass angle where I'm climbing some pretty impressive hill, I have the pipes rapping, the mudder digging, and then the damn thing has to make me look bad and stall out on me. I think it's just a holley thing, but I'm not sure. Is there a way I can fix this stalling on steep angles? Do you think it's the carb?
