The motor is a 440 J series so I believe that is a 1974, I believe it is mostly stock outside of an Edelbrock torkker II intake. I just bought it a month ago and the guy I got it from knew next to nothing about what, if anything had been done to the motor. The carb is a 4 Brrl demon 850 with a mechanical Choke. Just from the way it sounds when I manually accelerate it from underneath the hood as soon as I begin to throttle the car I can hear the air start sucking I assume that's because I am opening the butterflies, When I do this I do not see fuel coming out of the squirter. Should I? Or does it not squirt enough to see at that low of RPM? My gut feeling is the fuel air mixture is leaning out when I first accelerate, But if that is the case I do not why.
Thanks for your help!1
