Carb issue

So I have an Edelbrock 1406 600cfm carb on my SBC. It keeps bogging down. I just changed the fuel filter. What I noticed is there is no fuel coming out of the drivers side jet. How do I fix that?

pull the front float bowl and then the metering block..blow out every little hole you can see on the metering block and on the carb body with carb cleaner..while you have it apart is a good time to replace the accelerator pump diaphram and the power valve if you want to

Go to edelbrock.com and check out their tuning section for the 1406. Their tech information is easy to understand. These carbs work well for me on my street truck but I have a master kit for tuning them. They are more difficult than a Holley to dial in but in my opinion work better than most off the shelf Holley's that I have had when set up right. Good luck!

my $.02 To PO...... I think you should familiarize yourself with how Carbs work as a WHOLE. THEN consult the manuals. if not, you will only be doing some tweaking and adjusting without really understanding what/why/when you are doing. Too many people adjust things without knowing the facts.

HowStuffWorks "How does a carburetor work?"
