              This carb is a great "bolt on and go" product. It took minimal tools, and very minor tweaking to get the vehicle up and running in no time.

                  i can't believe it was so eay to install and it didn't need any adjustment to start up. i'm really impressed with the carb and the intake manifold that matches it. great products. i'll never buy anything of lesser quality.

                  Comments about Edelbrock Performer Series; Carb:

                  I put a 1405 on my 69 Chevelle 350 c.i. 255 horse motor. I had to buy a 50.00 adapter kit to install it where the quadrajet was, straight bore carb. to spread bore manifold. Also had to cut stock fuel line and buy a kit to hook the filter and fuel line to the new carb. I also purchased a 14 x 3" air cleaner to feed air to it. The stock air cleaner held too much air back. Vacuum to the transmission was also an issue. The mounting adapter did not have a pre-drilled port. Edelbrock suggested you drill your own port and install the proper fitting. I ended up splitting the timed vacuum port on the carb between the tranny and vacuum advance to the distributor.
                  It was not bolt on and go. It took several days at a few hours a day, to figure out all the parts needed and to get all the plumbing done.
                  That is the bad.
                  The good: The truck I put this motor in runs great. When I put my foot in it, the motor will set you back in the seat. The front lifts and it keep pulling. No hesitation, no spitting or sputtering, just power. I can't stay on it long at all because it has that much power that speeds get unsafe quick.
                  I like it that much that I am currently gathering all the parts I will need to put a 1405 on another truck I have. It is a tired 79 350. I hope to increase it's power too. It is only about a 175 horse motor so I am not expecting the power gain I got from the 69 motor.
                  When that one is complete, I will post my results on that one as well.

                  • Q:

                    I'm putting a 700r4 transmission behind a 283 in my chevy s 10. I understand that the lengths of various cables is vital to the proper operation of the transmission in this type of application. My transmission guy says he thinks Holley sells all of the cables and brackets I need. Are you familiar with this application and what it takes to make all this work? Thanks, Rick

                      Hi Rick! Good day! Yes, 700r4 transmission in a 283 Chevy S10 is a great conversion and you need the correct lengths of cable with this project. I researched the website but do not see more information on the Holley carb accessories for this conversion. I would recommend that you check with the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will be glad to assist you with this project.
