Still a slight rough idle

35

Asked by Jun 25, 2007 at 05:19 PM about the 1985 Chevrolet Suburban

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed the carb...the holley was leaking gas at the secondary...also had a stuck float....not bad for a new carb.
The new holley works better and doesn't leak....just did a complete tune-up and oil change....this is a rebuilt engine (350 small block)
with 25,000 miles on it....I'm wondering if their is something internal that may cause this problem.....HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
