Hi Pete,

I was thinking along the same lines as Chris (V_Mad) with your fuel delivery. What condition was the Holley 390 in when you installed it? What I am thinking, if the carby was not overhauled (new kit through it) it may have debris in it or even a poorly adjusted float and as Chris stated is running out of fuel.

Regards, Robin.

Brand new out of the box intake & Holley 390.

Regarding the intake manifold, how screwy is it that there’s no inset for a thermostat on an Edelbrock? Oh well, at least I’ll have better coolant flow, even if it does take a while to warm up.
