    I just put a carb spacer on my 350. Its got an Edelbrock intake and carb. What should I torque the 4 nuts, that hold down the carb, down to?

    I'm glad you said Chilton's.....I have the Haynes, and from what I've seen, Haynes tends to leave out some information that most people would find uselful.
    Hey Klunky, you STILL trying to install all your goodies you got in the mail the other day? Hehe

    Be quiet. I decided to only put on the carb spacer instead of the other stuff. I wanted to be able to drive the Blazer today because of the ice and crap. I went out and got an Accel cap and rotor too.
