  • 350 th350 conversion

    I've completed the conversion! I will post pics later this weekend. I drove it last night for the first time and everything is working great minus a power steering fluid leak in the hose and a small carb problem.

    The carburator is an Edel. 1405 600cfm. Timing is set to a total 32 degrees. The mixture screws have been adjusted to near factory spec. The motor wont cold start unless i put a little fuel in by hand. Once it starts, runs fine, and will start again. Doesn't want to cold start. I looked down the carb while turning it over and there is a very small amout of fuel being pumped in. Any ideas what it could be??

    Sounds like the choke is not adusted properly. The instuctions that came with the carb should detail how to adjust the choke. Being a carb you will have to pump the throttle a couple times when you cold start, that is normal. Pumping the throttle resets all the linkages to the cold start position, again assuming the choke is adjusted properly.

      Your right again. After some adjustments started right up.
