    holley are very sensitive to idle mixture,at the most 3/4 out from snug bottom is the most.

    also your idle (air/fuel)circuit is over and done by 800-1000 rpm then your primary kicks in,it should be a smooth transition with no lag

    id re route the fuel line, when the car gets hot it can vaporlock and make it near impossible to start. reroute it away from the engine and inside the frame rail away from exhaust manifolds or headers.

    also, just noticed your running 800cfm carb, way too much for mild 350 daily, should honestly probably be about a 650cfm, bigger isnt always better.

    it has a problem starting when it hasnt been started but once i get it started its ok it will start right back up after a couple mins but when i turn it off fuel will trickel down into the carb i can hear it when the air cleaner is off idk whats wrong with it weather it needz a rebuild or what i was also thinking maybe my fuel pump on my engine is meesing up as its old maybe thats why my car will go to dye is it not getting fuel to it?


    i put the fan shroud back on because when it starts to get at like 180-190 it starts to shut off when i stop.
