So I am going to assume you already have a 4BBL manifold installed, a 650DP is a good starter carb, not knowing what cam you have it will be rather difficult


All i know is it has 3/4 in racing cams. I was told i would need an msd distributor and dnt know what carburator. Ive been told 650 and 750


If it is a 3/4 race cam a 650DP or a 750DP will work, but with fuel prices I'd go with a 650DP unless you are going to race it then go 750DP carb.


Alright great thts what i needed to know. I really appreciate the help. Looks like il go with a 650 then. Normally id race it but im just tryin to build it showroom quality. Again thank you.
