What I mean for stock is factory motor, carb, etc..
I had the same issue on my Eddy 1406. I bought the eddy mechanical fuel pump, which self regulates at about 5.5psi. (I though it was cleaner than re-routing with an in-line regulator.) Also put on a carb spacer. I think mine got a little heat soaked. Hope this helps out your issue as well.
Overloaded... You mean flooded?
My Q-jet will sometimes flood a little bit if you start it up after it sits for 30-45 minutes. (The choke cools down enough to close but the engine doesn't need the choke.)
Less than 30 mins or more than an hour and it starts perfectly.
I have had problems with the stock fuel pump putting out too much pressure. I used a Holley regulator and set it to 5psi. No problems since.
Edelbrock are very sensitive to fuel psi.
a properly tuned EFI setup would solve the issue
Yeah at about 5X the cost too. A properly tuned carb works just fine.
Agreed, probably need more than 5 times to do it right.
I had fuel pressure issues at one time. And the gas would drain back into the tank after it was warm and then sat for a a bit. I have a 400 ( 406 ) truck engine in my car. I used the truck fuel pump. WRONG. I switched to an AC Delco fuel pump for a camaro and it solved everything. Not all fuel pumps are created equal. I was chasing my tail for months on this issue. A tech for Summit racing suggested I do this before anything else, he said, "not an aftermarket fuel pump, a factory AC Delco pump" He was right. Haven't had an issue since.
