I'm having some vapor lock, and hesitation problems with the stock carb. Just thought Edelbrock might be an alternative. I'm always open to suggestions. My mechanic didn't seem to be opposed to the switch, but if you think there might be something better out there I'll listen.


There is a shielded tubing that goes around the fuel lines and it totally eliminates vapor locking of these older vehicles, it is filled with fiberglass fibers and has a silicone shielding so it is very flexible.

That sounds like what I need. and it will save me a pot of money also. Thanks a lot.


If your local parts store doesn't have it or can't get it, it is on E-Bay under fuel line shield.
