    I recently put a holley 4 barrel on my 400 sbc. I did a search and could not find any specific answers. I am wanting to make it as off road ready as possible.

    So want needs to be done to help keep it from dying out on hills and off cambers?

    I had a Holley 4b 650cfm, and it sucked. I bought a 750cfm quadrajet a few months ago, never been better.

    I replaced the stock q-jet with the holley. I will have to look tonight to for sure which holley it is,but I think it's a 4160?

    I replaced the stock manifold with a edel. peformer and the holleycarb. The difference in throttle responce is night and day. Thats the only thing keeping me from putting the q-jet back on for now.

    where is the best place to order the baffles and spring loaded valves and seats?

    there are not any good 4x4 stores in my area to go ask. everybody around here just mud-bog.

    If you don't have any local speed or roundy-round shops I'd suggest Summit but they'll hit you for "shipping & handling".

    I've had good luck ordering holley stuff off e-bay. They usualy beat summit prices once you figure in the shipping/handeling charges.

    that is the only place other carbs can compete
