Hi, I’ve been trying to get my truck to start up after putting a airgap intake on and replacing the coil and distributor with an hei distributor, reusing the edelbrock carb that was on it. It cranks, has spark, plug 1 is set to cylinder 1 at TDC, plug wires are a year old and plugs look fine. The issues is in the carb it seems, when it cranks fuel is pumping but blast out of the “vents” the rectangular parts before the throats but after the bowl. So it’s a fuel issue in there I figure. I pulled the lid off of the carb yesterday not full disassembly but just to shake the floats down. Battery is dead after multiple attempts recently. So I’m just seeing if anyone has had this, has suggestions or knows the name of those windows are.
It pops straight up no fire just fuel. Also I’m using the 351w firing order 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8
