I hate my bowtie
No, Not the one that I wear on my collar! The one I drive! I am in the midst of one hell of a mess
with this! I am replacing the manifold, Carb and the distributor. The manifold is an Edelbrock # 2110
and rhe carb is also an Edelbrock 1406. This project has taken awhile, I wanted it to look nice, So I
painted the manifold Chevrolet blue. You know, So that shiny carb would stand right out there!
today makes day 5. I had to replace the distributor, because it was TOTALLY FRIED
But I think when I get her done, It'll be a sweet ride! I will let you know what i got when I am finnished
with it. Any last tips would be helpful. The manifold is mounted, Dist. is in place. Any thing I should watch for? Thanks Ohh, Almost forgot! The engine is a 350. Truckie is a 1977, 3/4 ton.

Yup, I dun did figured that out!!! When I started it today (August 17) 17 days after I started.
The throttle was WIDE OPEN! So I dis-connected the cable, Still WIDE OPEN!!! Called tech
support, And they confirmed, I need an adapter plate!!! Thanks, John

sounds like you might have jammed the throttle plates into the aluminum manifold to make it stay wide open worth looking at them for bends it will effect the idle if the plates dont close completely
