Took my first video of it today. A bit fast idle speed I know, but any slower than 900 - 950 rpms and it would cut off when driving it. Safe to say the shop that put the electric choke Holley on (while I wait for my 780 carb to be rebuilt) didn't know how to dial it in properly. Isn't the proper idle speed like 750 rpms or something?


Sounds fantastic!

Were both cars type LTs? Curious what are the trim tag dates? Points or HEI? (Pardon my asking, just narrowing down timelines)
Med red car was a sport coupe with spoilers, console and gauges no stripes It did not have HEI and I put a accel dual point in it along with solid cam and LT1 intake and Holley dbl pumper. I bought it off the lot.
Med brown car is LT Dec 73 car w stripes, it has a Muncie m20 in it. No info on my red one. It was back in the day and “just a car”. Both were points cars. However my white one was a LT TH400 HEI. Someplace I had trim tag info but haven’t found it since we moved last fall.
