With the 4-speed, it ran a best 1/4 mile of 14.96
at 98.02MPH. The speed is there, but I can't get it to hook up with the
2.73:1 station wagon gears in there. Next order of business is to get a
4.11:1 posi for the car (preferably a 12-bolt), and then I plan to put
a Holley 4150 on it. Anyone have any experience with this? I'm not sure
if I want to spend the extra $$$ and get a Barry Grant "Gold Claw" or just
get a stock 4150.
After installing the Barry Grant carburetor and
a couple jet changes, I ran the 1/4 mile in 14.10 at 101.8MPH. The
speed was very consistent, much better than the old Edelbrock carb.
I also had to bump up the rev limiter to about 7000RPM so that I could
finish the 1/4 in 3rd gear.
