Just installed a 350 crate motor and a TH350 trans with all the fluff, e.G.
headers, high rise intake, 750 edelbrock, 50K volt ignition etc. Engine will
rev up like it should to 6K rpms in park and neutral. But in gear it will not
go over 2K rpms - just bogs down and stalls out? Did check timing and
it advances with rpms. Any ideas? Thanks

It sounds to me like the powervalve in the carb is stuck, I would try another carb, Looks like you have a pretty sweet setup there. She should be alotta fun to drive. Plus check your fuel lines make sure there are no kinks, or leaks, a small pin hole in a steel line won't leak but will make the pump suck air. Good Luck, Lou
