My father taught me this. Bottom the screws...gently...then turn them out 1 1/2 turns. That gives you a great starting point. And SAIT taught patience. Turn them little by little evenly. Each time you turn them in or out even 1/4 turn, rev the engine up a bit and wait for it to settle. Patience is the key as always John. Of course it IS better if you have a four gas analyzer, but the ear gets them pretty darn close! LOL

Qjets, holley, AFB's all easy to tune. Make sure all vacum lines/ports are plugged or used.
1- make sure your timing is set correctly
2-set the base idle speed 750ish in neutral
3- #1 idle screw, turn it out or in until max rpm is gained, the turn back in till rpm drops 10-20rpm
4- reset idle speed 750 rpm
5- #2 idle screw same as #1
6- reset idle speed again to 750
7-done

The rpm speed at idle is for a stock to slightly cammed motor.
In gear it should beat about 600rpm.

Hope this helps bud if not come on out to Exshaw

Thanks! Once I put the rebuild kit in (early December) I set the base and have left it at that (had to do it by ear as the tach isn't working yet)....I got sidetracked on the front suspension and rebuild. Then I installed the headers and exhaust, as I wanted to set the carb once I had finished the exhaust and with the weather getting warm enough and streeets are clear enough I can maybe get a chance to play with the car a bit too.

It's all an exercise in patience!

We will have to get together, John. I'm busy right now working my butt off as my wife's job did some "restructuring". Hope she finds work quick!

But I will make it out there to see what you're doing and hopefully lend a hand.

Disc Brake Conversion is going well! Passenger side fits really nicely. (although I really do hate bleeding brake systems!!! )

Well a little change of scenery....just upgraded the convertible exhaust to LT's & High Flo Cats. I also did upgrade to MSD wires, but more for show....no real gains on wires I think.

Amazing sound and did feel a bit more HP. Getting set to send her in for tune & dyno hopefully this week to see actual gains and how much more can be squeezed out.

Big Thank You to Tom (Dragon22) for lending a hand......especially when trying to fish the dipstick tube back into place!! Thanks Again Tom, it was great you came out and nice to catch up again!!

So far the drone isn't too bad either.....better than with just the Axle Back I had on!!


Here are the obligatory pics and video....which the video doesn't do justice to the sound!

I'm getting the same done with my car with the LT headers, hi-flow cats, MSD wires and covers done at Davenport, along with a tune also! All in about three weeks!

What kind of axle-back are you running? I have the NPP exhaust on my car and it sounds awesome now...probably going to sound even better with the headers!

Nice! I have a CAI and a ported throttle body as well. So like you with the new headers going on I figured a tune is needed to see what I can get out of the car.

John, had a great time helping and gabbing. Great to see you and the Mrs. again. As for the video...very true. This is definitely one to hear in person. Makes all the difference in the world!

Thanks Again Tom!!

Took the car out for a spin yesterday morning and found people slow down when you're passing them now!!

Also I think I woke the neighborhood up when I started the car at 8:30am on a Sunday!! She is a little loud when she's fired up cold!!

LOL LOL

You are quite welcome again, John. If it's anything like mine, when you get into it, it's stupid loud! And CEL yet? And that trunk thing was crazy. Must have just had to relearn.

As for the neighbours...it's like a train passing in the night. One day they won't even notice you're starting her up. LOL

Well folks, seems a motor might be coming my way. Ran into a fellow who has a 327 bored to 30 over with flat top pistons and Edelbrock aluminum heads (202-160???) I assume these numbers are for the chamber & intake runner but the Chamber seems extremely high????.

Apparently the motor runs and will obviously see this before any deal is to be made. My problem is that I have no idea what a 327 SB should go for in "decent" condition????

Any ideas?

OK....back working on the car this weekend. The motor I was looking at fell through...:(

I have opened up the Rochester again to gain access to the idle mix screws (they were buried behind plugs). I set my timing to 4 degrees as per the tag, and then started setting my idle mix....it's pulling 18 inches of vacuum (not exactly sure on the RPM as the tach doesn't work) seems to run better but I still think it could be better.

Does anyone know what the vacuum should be at on these small blocks?
