WOW !! Just swapped my Edel 600 (1405) for a Holley 600 cfm w/ mechanical secondary this week-end (while waiting for my 750 Holley 3310).
What a kick in the pants !! I came flying out of my driveway !!! Wayyyy better throttle response and amazing middle & top end accelerations. The carb is a loaner that came right-off a 351C. With no adjustment changes(aside from idle screws). Can't even imagine what it will be like after tuning !!

I am taking the Edel today to get it melted down into a set of earings & neckless for my wife, and she KNOWS HOW MUCH THAT MEANS !!!

Well, Pierre, I replace the stock 2V carb on the 351C that's in my '66 pickup with a Holley 780 (3310-1). I'm still getting good fuel mileage, as good as the 2V carb, as long as I keep my foot out of it!

HOLLEY IS A GIRL'S NAME....BUT........
THE ALL MIGHTY GURU (Alex) HAS CONVINCED ME...HOLLEY CARBS FROM NOW ON..
If only they were as easy to F**k with as the E Brock....
My 750 DP'er made a hell of a difference over the 750 E Brock.
Screw gas mileage....unless it's an everyday driver..I like mechanical secondaries, and not worrying about vacuum and springs...

I once installed a Jimmy Carter (Edelbrock) carb on a Ford school bus (no kidding)because the customer was too cheap to pay for the replacment Holley. It ran real good.

Real slow too!

Once again I have to come to Carter AFB rescue.Mine is a 750 manual secondarys and this is no drag car,but if anyone goes to any SAAC events I will be glad to give some lessons.I did go to Va. motorsports park and I dont know about the 1/8mile,but I ran 13.2 in the 1/4 with 60ft time at 1.95 slipping the clutch to keep traction on my street tires.This carb is straight out of box with nothing but air flow adjustment.

I like my gas to go into the engine, not on top of it. The holleys I've had all leaked. Never have bought a new one tho. The E-brocks work so well right from the box.

New gasket materials has solved a lot of the old Holley problems with leakage. The newer holleys or older versions rebuilt with the red or blue gaskets do not have the leakage problems that the laminated paper gaskets had.

Thanks for the info Mpcoluv. I do have a few Holleys on a shelf and hate to spend $200 + on a new card. I will have to try it.

My local speed shop stocks both the red and blue gaskets. I can't remember what the difference is. You can also get the carbs back apart and re-assemble without scraping he metering block and bowl gasket surfaces.

Ok, the Red gaskets are made by Holley I think, and the Blue gaskets are made by AED Performance

I have used the Blue AED ones with good results

Since you guys are talking about Holleys...

Which is better, a double pumper or one of those new street avengers. I'm probably going to pick up a new intake/carb set up here in about a month.

Thanks!

A double pumper is better for drag racing, a vacuum secondary is better for the street.
