Default predator carb on THAT 454

time for a carb change- cruise at 7Omph no lag or bog and no problem till the edlebrock 625 died, it needs rebuilt but worked on the 2 barrel intake conversion l reversed engineered really well.. - l got a predator 6OOO series l am rebuilding to put on her.

with the variable venturi design of the Predator carburetor it allows it to work strictly off of the air demand of the engine and meters fuel in a direct relationship to that demand.

will it work 0K with the TBl 2 barrel intake or ?????

been having a blast driving her till the carb took a dump--

guess l will try the 6OOO and if it don't work l got 6OO holley

Welcome back.
I've often wondered if that setup would work. Basically, you have two venturis in series, and I've found that only one will work, but I can't remember whether it's the front one or the back one. I was trying to replumb my air seeder to put seed and fertilizer in the same airflow.
Your carb is the first venturi and it must have worked for a while.
Come to think of it, you are sucking air through your setup and I was blowing air through mine. Maybe that makes a difference.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

That's similar to how a Rochester operates then? In terms of variable air air demand?

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
