    off road carb for sbc

    So I've got a YJ housing a chevy 350 with a torkerII manifold mated to an Edelbrock 1405 performer carb. Works great on level ground.... I've heard about the off road kits, and several dissapointing comments to go with them. Also heard something about plugging some ports??? Also heard to start over with a Q-jet. Anyone have experiences with a similar setup? and no, I really don't want to me$$ with a fuel injection conversion. What yall got??

    edelbrocks can be great when tuned correctly off road, they will withstand some pretty nasty angles as well. but if you can't seem to get yours tuned right, i must say a properly set up Q-jet is hard to beat. Holley is one of the worst for running on angles though.

    i had a 1406 edelbrock on my old truck and it would run on some steep stuff, but did not like off camber at all

    Dry sump the float bowls and that problem goes away.

    my holly 750 truck avenger seems to work well. its built to handle up to a 60 degree incline front to rear and a 30 degree incline side to side. ive heard that its hard to find ports for the Q-jets anymore but run well when tuned properly. however i have no experience with them.

    I'm running the Holley TA470 on my CJ. It works really well at extreme angles, both up/down and side to side. But, I have problems with it on washboard bumpy roads-it seems like the repeated vibrations cause it to flood out. I'd have to say the jury is still out on the Holley.

    I used to have a Rochester book that would help you set up a carb for whatever you wanted. Should never loan out good books like that.
