• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Edelbrock AVS2 Carburetor, anybody running one?


Soon I will be sending the IH 345 engine out for a rebuild. I was planning on installing a Hamilton TBI for my fuel needs. This new carb the AVS2 that Edelbrock came out with has me wondering? Is any body running one? As I undertand you don't want to over carburetor these engines. I wonder how the 500 cfm model would perform?

My Scout with a warmed over 345 is running a Holley 390 cfm 0-8007. It is setup very similar to the carb on oem carb on the 392 and works great and can get 15mpg if I can keep my foot out of it. If you search for the pn there is a build thread on it. With minor mods to the vents it is rock solid off road too.


FDChappie thanks for the reply. My 800B with a 304 has a Holley 2300 0-7448 and it is a great carb. I will look into your suggestion. Thanks.
