Re: Timing issue on a 292?

Actually no i didn't. Would that cause it to advance that far? I haven't messed with a carburetor and timing light for well over 30 years.

Re: Finally running after 50 years

Re: Edelbrock 500 for 292?

Thanks for the replies. So would the 1403 performer be a good choice , fit? I think I would rather have an electric choke vs trying to find a place to install a manual one in the dash.

Re: Edelbrock 500 for 292?

Sia I bought one of those new HEI distributors on ebay. I don't have, never had a teapot, any dual distributor, or even a tachometer.

Re: Edelbrock 500 for 292?

oh and not sure which air cleaner will clear the tbird hood If anyone has done this. I don't have anything at the moment. I pretty much started out with a block and heads and exhaust manifolds.
