    A Edelbrock 1406 carb. I had the last and final problem with my carb and trashed it for the Edelbrock. From worn shafts, to epoxy plugs coming loose, to gas leaks you name it. It's the difference between night and day and came out of the box ready to go. Had to make a small idle mixture adjustment.

    I've not done a Rochester, but I have done Holley and Carter. I would suggest to rebuild it all in one sitting. In other words, don't take it apart and put it back together in a few days because you may forget where everything went. Also, make sure to clean it very well and use gloves when handling the parts cleaner. The nasty smell will last for days!!!! Be very observant and keep an eye on all the parts.
