The Carter Performance series worked fine. Edelbrock had some quality control issues. Too much dirt on the assembly floor, and the needles would jam and it would flood out. The actual design isn't really that bad. When I was selling that stuff, if I was completely unable to talk the customer out of buying an Edelbrock, I would give them the $18 rebuild kit for free, because they were going to need it.Knowing what I know about carter carburetors.
I always wonder why edelbrock chose such a terrible design to remarket.
I think that's what I'll do. I'll just have to learn how to tune it.Ran one for over 15 years, never touched it once tuned. 28 or 9 MPG out of a mild 5.0 with a T5, and ran (LOL) 11's easily. Tuned holley went on it to see if it was any faster and it wasn't. Edelbrock 1405 went back on for the remainder of the time I owned the car.
I like them. You set it, and never have to touch it again. Most people don't know how to tune them though. They are completely different than a holley.
Edelbrocks are "similar" to the carter's but Edelbrocks are (or were at one time) Weber designs that kinda looked like an AVS.
