  2. Carb Q!

    Classic Cougar Tech
    I have a 75 Cat with a 351W and 2v Carb. I bought a 4v stock intake manifold and was trying to decide between a stock 4v carb vs an Edelbrock 1405/1406 carb with an electronic choke. My mechanic friend says to stick with stock because of linkage and such. I was wondering what you all think or...
  3. Car won't take gas

    Classic Cougar Tech
    When my car is cold, it sometimes does this weird thing where it acts like it wants to die and it won't take gas. This happens in about the 20-30 mph range and the only way to keep going seems to be to put the pedal almost to the floor and then it eventually accepts it after 2-3 seconds and...

  7. carb from hell

    Classic Cougar Tech
    I'm really getting sick of this Holley carb on my cat...I've adjusted it about 10 times (with a vacuum gauge) and it keeps coming out of adjustment after two days....the crazy thing is, the float adjustment screws almost come all the way out before it idles normally, but then drinks gas like a...
