Default Re: To rebuild Holley 1904 or?

Well it sounds like it's an external vacuum leak. A spray of carb cleaner around the manifold and base of the carb may speed the engine up a bit when you hit the leak. Give it just enough choke to keep it running while you test.

Good news

It was the adapter plate at the bottom of the carb. I hadn't tightened it down enough.

This girl runs better the. She has in at least 30 years. I'm in love!! (Have been for awhile)

Might be more carb then she'll ever need but that's fine. Thank you guys for your help.
