Contemplating going back to stock carb...

6 posts in this topic

As the title says, Edelbrock makes good power but is no easier to start than my properly jetted stocker, the stocker would always start first kick cold, the Eddy takes 3-4 with alot of priming and hot they are about the same, the stocker I think I might be able to change jets by tilting the carb sideways, not sure but I definitely have to prop the tank up to adjust the Eddy, and boy does this thing drink fuel with this carb, I can hit reserve in 45 miles of hard riding...but it does act like she is running rich. I guess I need to fiddle with some more to make it worthwhile, I'm not really going to go back to stock :ride:

With my Edelbrock I average about 28 miles per gallon in the desert. I have a stage one Hotcam and that is why my mileage sucks. My buddy who has the same set up (Edelbrock carb) but stock cam averages 35 mpg in the desert. :ride:
