Hello,

New (poster anyway) guy here.

Interested in comments on the build as it stands and possible gotcha's. Been a long time Cleveland fan, the block is out of the '70 HT Cougar I worked on and drove when I was 17! (almost 53 now).

Anyway, fine tuning underway, first thing (believe it or not) is a bad primary metering block out of the box on a brand new 4777C 650 CFM 4150. Sent to Holley tech services for a replacement yesterday (was surprised they listened to my troubleshooting experiments and agreed!).

Hope to get this thing running just right, not bad now but not ideal either.

Comments welcome.

Thanks,

Bob
