Drew do you have a FB account for the carbs ? I was wanting to show you some pictures of a chevy 396/375 427/425 carb with adjustable idle air bleeds

My personal account is my name.
Carb stuff is found at "Air Fuel Spark"
I document most of my builds there.

Yeah the adjustable air bleeds.... a lot of Chevy carbs had those.  I normally drill them out at the main body face and install a restriction there.

We had a discussion a little while back on needle and seat Orings.
The old wisdom was "buy Holley parts" because they are superior.

Here is a brand new Holley needle and seat, straight out of a trick kit.

Apparently the "trick" part is getting it to seal. ::)
That seal tells me that the kit has been sitting on a shelf for a good deal of time.

Drew,
You do many secondary metering block conversions for the 660's ? I realize this is modern mostly made on all out race carbs and also that for alot of the 2x4 street setups there's just not enough room on the standard manifolds commonly used on the street.
Just a curious question, no rime or reason.

Nope, can't say that I do.  As you mentioned, most are being used inline, so space is more critical.

   I have used the #4841 secondary metering block on sideways 660's and it works fine. There are special secondary plates that accept replaceable jets out there. The '60s version was made by Eelco and was pot metal like the carbs. Newer versions ( Quick fuel and others) are aluminum. I have used both on my Ford inline intakes ( non high riser) with no ill effects. Replacable jets are FAR better.
