Don't know the number for a Holley brand carb, but a remanufactured Rochester by Holley can be found here: http://www.holley.com/Reman/index.html
I have a reman Roch by Holley and it's doing okay....still a quadrajunk though.
If no one else has the number, I would shoot Holley an email. They're really good about getting back quickly with an answer.
I agree. The MSD ignition and coil, with the Edelbrock Performance (Torker II) 2-piece intake is the way I am going with some help on the exhaust side.You can get conversion pieces to go to 4 barrell, but the properly designed intake is better. :flame:
Arns, I did a search on the MSD ignition box (I was thinking of getting one to compliment my ignition coil) a while back and found that a lot of the ones installed began to burn out. The result was the people having to buy new ones. I forget the reason behind it, but might want to do the search as well. Heh, heh, now that I took out my catalytic converter, I should install a spark plug in the exhaust to do like the smiley above does.....
There is an alternative to running the Holley which is more cost effective and better performance. Weber makes a 2bbl carb that graphs on perfectly for alot less than the Holley carb. The kit is Weber PK490. Comes with a 38 DGES carb and all the air cleaner upgrades and parts for $450. I plan on running it with the Edelbrock intake, Tubular headers, MSD Offroad 6 ignition with HEI coil, using the 3.4 GM performance motor in a 4wd '85 S10 Blazer project I'm building. Quote from an Edelbrock tech. was over 210hp and 260torque which was my guess for the combo. Need to get a dyno when I'm completely done.
When we installed my MSD ignition, we got it away from the heat and put rubber spacers under the screw holes to give it air all round. I believe that heat is the culprit on most of those ignition burnouts. Mine has been working great.
JayBlair77's engine sounds really sweet. I wish I had it.
I think I am going to end up using a weber carb. I'm not concerned with HP or going fast...I just want better gas mileage. I've got plenty of other toys to cure the got fast bug . Thanks for all of the help.
